Plan of Conservation and Development

The 2020-2030 Western Connecticut Regional Plan of Conservation and Development was prepared in compliance with Section 8-35a of the Connecticut General Statutes.  The plan must show “its recommendations for the general use of the area” including land use, housing, transportation, public utilities and “other matters as, in the opinion of the council, will be beneficial to the area.” This Plan replaces previous regional plans issued by HVCEO (1971, 1981, 1997 and 2009) and those of SWRPA (1974, 1983 and 2006). 

The 2020 – 2030 Western Connecticut Regional Plan of Conservation and Development was adopted by the council on January 16, 2020. Thank you to everyone who contributed through comments. All comments received and staff responses can be found here: Comments and responses (.pdf).

A technical appendix including relevant data used in the creation of this plan will be released shortly.
