OCP and Growth Management


We assist local governments in identifying and quantifying the timing and location of projected growth over the short-term (next 5 years), medium-term (5 -15 years) and long-term (15- 30 years) period. These analyses typically involve:


  • Review and assessment of existing OCP policies and regional growth policies

  • Review of environment and infrastructural assets of the community

  • Demographic and socio-economic analyses

  • Population and employment projections

  • Economic base analyses

  • Assessment of current land inventory and projected capacity of study area

  • Public consulting, workshops and surveys

  • Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis

  • Action plan for the short-term, mid-term and long term

Some of our recent studies include:
