Planning & Regulations

Kettle Creek Conservation Authority's (KCCA) land use planning and regulations programs work together to ensure that human development occurs outside hazardous areas while maintaining our local natural resources. Because conservation authorities operate on a watershed basis, rather than according to municipal boundaries, watershed planning is the most effective and comprehensive approach to land use planning. KCCA’s involvement in land use planning helps to prevent human peril and property damage due to flooding and erosion, and protects natural areas, water quality and shorelines.
