Land Development & Community Master Plans

For more than 60 years, MMM Group Limited has been a leader in the delivery of multidisciplinary solutions for urban and rural land development projects. We are committed to helping to transform land into attractive, marketable developments and dynamic communities where people want to live, work, and play.

We are proud of our role in the planning and development of thousands of hectares of land for residential neighbourhoods, business parks, and retail and office complexes across Canada, ranging from small-scale infill developments to large, master-planned neighbourhoods – from greenfield settings to urban redevelopment sites.

Our land development team has the knowledge and expertise to confidently execute the entire land development process. Our design approach is centered on an in-depth understanding of a project’s technical details, along with integration among our in-house disciplines, allowing our team to confidently take projects from the initial concept and design stage, through to the approval and permitting process. Our comprehensive understanding of the technical, financial, and practical realities of land development, and our consistent ability to produce creative and cost-effective solutions for complex project challenges, makes us an ideal project partner to optimize the value of your land development holdings.

We have a thorough knowledge of public planning policies and regulations; municipal and provincial government processes and procedures; the legislative environment; and other factors that influence the cost, schedule, and management of development projects. This enables us to create and explore solutions that avoid expensive delays, streamline the development process, minimize risk, and effectively control costs. We continuously leverage our expertise in planning policy interpretation, economic planning, negotiation, and public consultation to ensure the needs of our clients are understood and met. Our team of Registered Professional Planners also has extensive experience representing the interests of our clients at the Ontario Municipal Board and other tribunals.

Our services include:

  • Community master plans
  • Subdivision plans
  • Economic planning and development feasibility
  • Development approvals
  • Site plans
  • Consultant team management
  • Landscape infrastructure
  • Ecological design, green infrastructure, and restoration
  • Planning and development of resorts and waterfronts
  • Expert testimony

From our offices across Canada, our experienced surveyors, planners, and engineers bring their local knowledge and context to projects, and leverage their established relationships with local, regional, and provincial government agencies to obtain critical and accurate site information, aid in negotiations, and derive and expedite approvals that save money, comply with the project schedule, and meet agency requirements. We bring a local perspective to your projects, and put our national resources at your disposal.
