Eastern Kings Official Plan

May 2021

The Rural Municipality of Eastern Kings was incorporated in 1974 and is the easternmost community in Prince Edward Island. The community is home to approximately 700 permanent residents and many more who spend the summer months at their cottages and seasonal homes. 

New issues have emerged since Eastern Kings’ last land use documents were developed, so the Municipality hired UPLAND to update the Official Plan and Bylaw, as well as accompanying administrative resources. The Plan Review will address concerns like sea level rise, housing shortages, the protection of agricultural land, and renewable energy development. The review is an important opportunity to establish a shared vision for the future and guide growth and development in the years to come. Updates will also ensure the documents are easier to navigate and understand. 

To complete this review, UPLAND is working closely with Municipal staff, Council, and community members to develop planning documents that reflect the community’s needs and clarify the development process. The new Plan and Bylaw will be based on a strong foundation of community engagement, and UPLAND is conducting a series of activities throughout the process to collect input on land use priorities and values. Consultation to date has included a public survey, workshops, and stakeholder interviews.
