In 2012 the Town of Digby adopted the Municipal Planning Strategy the planning strategy sets forth Council's long term policies to guide all future development and use of land within the Town. This strategy is intended to be an enabling document and to provide Council and the community with a common vision for the Town's future. Recognizing that pressures, influences and underlying circumstances do change over time amendments to the policies are possible.
