The planning advisory committee (CCU) is an organization that is mandated by the municipal council to provide advice on planning and land use applications that have been submitted to it.
The CCU is a working group comprising at least one member of the municipal council and residents it selects to guide and support its planning actions.
The CCU’s recommendations and advice enable the municipal council to make the most of the contributions of elected officials and residents who can share the benefits of their life experiences in the Municipality and their particular concerns for the development of their territory. A CCU provides the opportunity to bring residents closer to urban planning issues.
In some cases, elected officials and residents can also provide specific expertise or reflect the interests of certain socio-economic groups that are interested in commercial development, environmental protection, heritage conservation, etc.
