The Digby Municipal Airport is an important economic asset to the Municipality. Adopted in 2009 the Airport Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law have been adopted to regulate and promote the development of the airport. The Strategy and By-law complement a strategic business plan for the airport prepared by the Municipal and the Town of Digby in 2006.

The Strategy and By-law provide for ongoing airport operations as well as aviation-oriented commercial, industrial and residential uses. The By-law establishes a variety of zones, with regulations relating to lot sizes, building locations, location of different land uses and the regulation of building heights. A municipal Development Permit is required for all uses within the plan area.

See maps below of the zoned areas around the airport where permits are required.
