The Service Urbanisme (Urban Planning Department) consists of two divisions:

  • the Division Police des bâtisses (Building Supervision Division), which is responsible for building permits and providing information on the general development plan (plan d'aménagement general – PAG),
  • the Division Urbanisme et développement urbain (Urban Planning and Urban Development Division) is primarily tasked with managing the PAG, urban planning and development, and the preparation and coordination of urban projects, master plans (plans directeurs – PD), and special development plans (plans d'aménagement particuliers –PAP).
