The North East Development Plan was commissioned by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica through the Ministry of Housing, Lands and Telecommunications, pursuant to the Physical Planning Act No. 5 of 2002 (PDF, 228 KB), with assistance from the Caribbean Open Trade Support Project of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The main objectives of the study are:

  • To guide the change in land use pattern from predominantly agricultural to other uses such as tourism, housing, etc.
  • To adapt an integrated approach to major existing and proposed development projects and the resultant changes

Land with titles dated prior to 2009 may be exempt from the required lot sizes set by the Northeast Land use Plan, however if the lot is smaller than a 1/3 of the recommended size may not be considered favorable.

All lands are still required to comply with the specified uses.
