The City of Charlottetown, with the expert assistance of The Planning Partnership, is currently undertaking a review of the Official Plan and Zoning & Development Bylaw. In an effort to reflect the neighbourhood aspirations and to provide guidance for amendments to the Official Plan and the future development of the City, "visioning" exercises have been held with residents and interested parties of different areas of the City.

500 Lot Area (and Waterfront)
The City of Charlottetown engaged in a broad scale master planning process for the Waterfront. Subsequent to of a number of public consultation events and months of research, the Master Plan was presented to City Council and members of the public at the end of 2012. Following the receipt of the Waterfront Master Plan, amendments to the Official Plan and Zoning & Development Bylaw were drafted to reflect the goals and policies of the plan. These amendments were presented to the public in February, 2013, and have since been approved by Council and were formally adopted on May 29, 2013.

500 Lot Area
Commencing in the Fall of 2010, the City of Charlottetown retained The Planning Partnership (TPP) to prepare new Development Standards and Design Guidelines for the 500 Lot Area, which encompasses much of the City's historic, cultural, civic and symbolic core.
The input gathered, along with best practice research and a review of existing plans and policies, formed the foundation for the resulting Official Plan and Bylaw amendment proposals. These amendments were presented to the public in March, 2013, and have since been approved by Council and were formally adopted on September 11, 2013.
The East Royalty Master Plan was adopted by Council on September 14, 2015 and the Official Plan amended with the inclusion of the East Royalty Master Plan. This document addresses land use issues and traffic in this area of the City and will guide all future planning in the neighbourhood of East Royalty.
