The National Land Use Policy provides direction for issues related to land use planning in the Commonwealth of Dominica ("Dominica"). The National Land Use Policy sets the foundation for all land use decisions and describes how best to manage development to improve quality of life for Dominicans, through economic and social development, protecting human health and safety, and conserving the natural environment.

This policy works in concert with legislation and other policies to forward the Government's goal of leveraging all of the human, natural and financial resources available to the country, in order to realise the vision for Dominica as a place characterised by economic success and by the much-enhanced quality of life of its people, through their own empowerment, and through policies of Government geared to facilitating an environment within which private enterprise can flourish. (Medium-Term Growth and Social Protection Strategy, 2012-2014).
