The urban plan is the planning document which establishes the guidelines for the spatial and physical organization of a municipality while presenting an overall vision of the development of its territory. Usefulness The urban plan is the municipality’s most important official document in the planning of the development of its territory. It contains the town planning policies adopted by the municipal council which will guide its decision-making in the future. It is a management tool that allows the municipal council:
- ensure consistency between intervention choices in sectoral issues (e.g. housing, commerce, transport, environmental protection, recreation, municipal facilities) while taking into account development potential and constraints the natural and built environment as well as the concerns and expectations expressed by citizens and organizations during the public consultation;
- define intervention policies for the installation of equipment or infrastructure while considering the needs and financial situation of the municipality (e.g. parks and green spaces, recreational and cultural facilities, road infrastructure , bicycle networks, parking lots, water supply);
- coordinate the interventions and investments of the various municipal services (eg, road works, residential development sequences, revitalization program and renovation grants, acquisition of buildings, waste management). This results in programming of prime importance for the preparation of the three-year fixed assets program (PTI) and for the annual budget;
- to assert its vision of the desired development to investors, various development agents, public or private, and to make the population aware of the challenges of development;
- to complete, by specifying it, the planning of the territory contained in the regional planning and development plan;
- to make known the intentions underlying the control that it may wish to establish within urban planning regulations (eg, zoning, subdivision, siting and architectural integration, regulation of non-conforming uses, nuisances, specific projects).

The council of a municipality may constitute, by by-law, an advisory committee to carry out studies and submit recommendations to it in matters of town planning, zoning, subdivision and construction.
The mandate of a CCU can relate to the development or modification of the urban plan and regulations, such as the opening of streets, the opinions that the municipality must give to the Commission de protection du territoire agricole du Québec. , etc. In addition, when the municipality wants to adopt by-laws on minor exemptions, on comprehensive development plans (PAE), on site planning and architectural integration plans (PIIA), on conditional uses and on specific construction, modification or occupancy projects of a building, it must have a CCU, and the latter must send the council an opinion on each of the requests that are presented with regard to these by-laws. Finally, the CCU must also formulate opinions on each request submitted in the context of the application of a regulation on heritage sites and religious historic monuments. The CCU is made up of at least one member of the council and a variable number of people chosen from among the residents of the municipality, appointed by resolution.
