Building Code Review Committee. The Committee takes into consideration how to construct buildings using new materials. In that regard, implementation of the Building Code requires qualified personnel to review the Code, to make sure that it is acceptable to the standards and norms of society.

The Building Code Review Committee consists of: -

  • Grenada Bureau of Standards;

  • Engineering Association;

  • Physical Planning Unit.

Physical Planning Development Act 2002

The Physical Planning and Development Act 2002 was passed in Parliament in 2002.

The old Land Development Control Act of Grenada was very restrictive, because it focused mainly on Development Control and especially the enforcement of building construction. It did not address critical responsibilities of the Physical Planning Unit, which involves proper land zoning and preservation. The Act makes provision for: -

  • The preparation of strategic plans such as the National Physical Development Plan,

  • Environmental protection and conservation through planning and land use and areas or zones assigned for residential or commercial development,

  • Conservation,

  • Prime agricultural lands,

  • Tourism activities,

  • Marine activities.
