Welcome to the webpage for the review and update of the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Municipal Plan and Development Regulations 2024-2034.

 

The Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Council and staff in collaboration with Tract Consulting is pleased to announce that it has completed the draft of the proposed Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Municipal Plan and Development Regulations 2024-2034.
