LAND USE & DEVELOPMENT

Economic development is often closely tied with land development. It can be for purposes of developing new businesses such as recreational services, light industrial sites or new housing developments. 4CMC helps clients develop land use policies and strategic plans for their lands. We also support communities with their negotiations with the government and industry around land use and title and rights.

4CMC is committed to land development projects that are environmentally sustainable and culturally appropriate. Developing a land use plan is often complicated because of competing demands and values connected to the land. With this in mind, 4CMC is committed to land development projects that balance cultural, environmental and economic needs of the community.
