Port Authority > Planning
Instruments for port planning include Port Area Usage Plans (PUEP) and Special Development Plans.
The Port Area Usage Plan is an organizational tool that has two fundamental purposes: the demarcation of the port service area and the non-urban development of the port in that area through the allocation of anticipated usage.
The port service area includes the necessary space on land and water for various port uses, reserved areas to ensure that the port activity can be carried out and other areas that may be destined for non-port usage.
Port usage is an umbrella term that covers commercial use, including activities involving interchanging modes of transport, basic port services and other commercial port activities; the fishing industry; water sports and related usage, including logistics and storage; and usage made by industrial or commercial firms whose location in the port is justified.
The Ministry of Public Works is responsible for approving the usage plan.
The Special Development Plan is an urban development tool for the port and as such governs the comprehensive planning of the service area. In other words, it must contain basic infrastructure and services, land reserves, equipment, detailed and compatible usage, byelaws, development potential and other parameters for urban planning, such as maximum occupation, buildable area, regulatory heights, type of building and so forth.
The Port Authority is responsible for drawing up the special plan and presenting it for approval at City Hall.
In order to draw up a special plan, the Port Authority must first ensure that a usage plan has been approved.
