The Planning Division works to achieve sustainable development and improve the quality of life in the City of Concord by supporting economic growth, environmental protection, and development design quality. The key functions of the Planning Division are the development and implementation of the Master Plan, review of development proposals, and staff support for the Planning Board.

Master Plan Development & Implementation
The division is committed to engaging the community and working cooperatively to shape and promote a shared long-term vision for the future of the city that reflects citizen input and community values. View the City Master Plan and other individual plans.

Development Review
Providing professional advice, technical expertise, and practical alternatives for effective planning and management of development within Concord, the Planning Division encourages innovative development and design solutions and positive change.

We work directly with citizens, consultants, and other city staff on the permitting of subdivision, site plan, design review, and conditional use permit applications and encourage at least one informal pre-application meeting with planning staff. Please contact the City Planner by calling 603-225-8515 if you would like to set up a meeting.

Planning Board
The Planning Division provides technical planning guidance and assistance to the Planning Board on development applications, the Public Capital Facilities Impact Fee Ordinance, and regularly reviews and recommends updates and amendments to the board’s Subdivision and Site Plan Regulations.

The Planning Division also provides staff support to the Conservation Commission, the Heritage Commission, and the Architectural Design Review Committee
