Land Use Planning
Airzone conducts air quality assessments for compatibility studies required for municipal land-use re-zoning applications. We have carried out many assessments for applicants seeking re-zoning for both sensitive land use developments and also facility (industrial, infrastructure), etc. developments. Moreover, we have undertaken comprehensive reviews of assessments submitted by others on behalf of municipalities. We are experienced in the Ministry of the Environment’s D-series Land Use guidelines and their application to screen-out land uses that are insignificant. For land uses that are not insignificant, we provide modelling services to fulfil the site-specific modelling requirements of the assessment. Our extensive experience with the Ministry of the Environment’s D-series Land Use guidelines and their application in the re-zoning process allows us to quickly screen-out land uses that are insignificant, thus providing substantial savings for applicants. For other land uses that are significant, we also provide modelling services to fulfill the site-specific requirements of the assessment. Our clients include developers, existing potentially affected landowners and municipalities that require assistance in reviewing D-series assessments or air quality dispersion modeling studies.
