This work is being done with careful analysis and meaningful consultation with the public and stakeholders. This is very important to ensuring that the Plan is rooted in an excellent understanding of existing conditions and is a useful document for the community.

The Municipality is reaching out to ask how residents, business, and community groups see Cumberland and how they would like it to evolve. Do we have the jobs and services to attract and retain young families? How can we help enable small businesses and the agricultural sector? These questions and many more will be asked throughout the Plan Cumberland project.

Please CONTACT US at any time.


A series of open house public consultations will be held throughout the County to answer questions and gather feedback about the draft municipal planning strategy and land use bylaw.

The survey is now closed.

This survey was for owners and operators of businesses in Cumberland County.  

Input is helping to influence updates to the Cumberland Municipal Planning Strategy, and lead to improvements that make it easier to start or expand a business in Cumberland. It was open to responses for two weeks.

Survey closed on Thursday, September 14th.
