Urban Planning

Urban & Regional Planning is concerned with land use, environment protection, transportation, and infrastructure among others. Municipalities must ensure that a design from a proposed development meets regulations such as zoning by-laws, Official Plans, and Provincial legislations to safeguard sustainability and smart growth.

That being said, your development application needs approval by your local authorities, we strongly recommend you to have your proposal reviewed by a Planning Professional to assess it and recommend any changes before you submit your application.

At Lawris, we have integrated some Planning and Urban Design Services to provide you with a complete solution for your development matters at any stage of your application.


Home-onwers and developers are governed by their municipal by-laws, official plan and other provincial legislation. Our Planning services focus on getting your application approved.
