The planning system is a vital tool in helping to deliver the two National Park purposes and related socio-economic duty.The 'Local Plan' sets out the planning framework for the National Park, including the scale and location of new development and the need to conserve the local distinctiveness of the area.
We also provide details of a number of organisations that operate within the village.
Set out below are details of the current Local Plan for the Park - the Core Strategy (2010) - and also the work we are currently doing to prepare a new Local Plan.
The national planning system has changed significantly in recent years and we are therefore updating our planning policies to ensure they continue to provide a clear framework for planning decisions in the Park.
FEMA initially released preliminary Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps for communities within the Greater New Orleans area – Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. The online mapping portal uses GIS (geographic information systems) technology and allows users to review both current effective flood hazard information and preliminary flood hazard delineations.
The public can review the updated flood hazard data presented on the preliminary DFIRMs for each parish through an interactive web mapping portal launched by FEMA Region VI.
