Stanley is a municipality rich with heritage, natural resources, agriculture production and recreation. As a result, there is pressure to utilize the municipality for a variety of interests (e.g. aggregate mining, tourism, agriculture, recreation, residential settlement, commercial development and other land uses).
It is important that the demand for development is balanced with the need to protect and preserve valuable resources and the environment.
Land use planning involves managing land uses and deciding where best to develop homes, parks, agriculture and industry, and where things should be left in their natural state.
Land use planning is a partnership between the provincial government and municipality and their citizens. Through the planning process, citizens are involved in the decision making process.
