What we do

Create hybrid bylaws

There are so many ways to zone. We evaluate and apply only the right zoning approach based on the goals and desired outcomes of your municipality.

Create bylaws for better development  outcomes

We take a systemic view of zoning where this tool is much more than the document that houses it. Zoning facilitates conversations and affects land use decisions. Our bylaws strategically address both to support change or reinforces the status quo where desired.

Create user-friendly bylaws

Anyone can access, read, and understand our bylaws.  They are designed, structured, and accessible to maximize the user experience for all and meet accessibility standards.

Create bylaws that work for the long-term 

Implementation can be one of the biggest challenges with any zoning change. We support you through the implementation stages to set you up for success.

How we do it

We are reflective

We are deliberate in our approach and take the time to understand the places we work and what solutions are best.

We learn to grow

Every bylaw we do gets better. We continually apply new practices and knowledge to make our bylaws more robust and effective.

We have fun

Zoning is not boring. Seriously. We explore the playfulness in connecting with communities and clients to better engage and find solutions that truly meet your needs.

We are empathetic 

We are all people trying to make our way in this confusing world. We want to know and understand your stories. Helping you to achieve your goals is the reason we do this work.

We do it right, from the beginning

We understand the full scope of what it takes to build, review, and implement a bylaw. Our bylaws are designed for every stage, and we have pioneered monitoring methods so the bylaw is effective for the long-term.

Plateia's strategy is the Chef's K.I.S.S for zoning

Zoning is like the ingredients and instructions used for making a cake. The icing on top only matters if the recipe for the cake is clear. Quality ingredients and a clear recipe build a great-tasting cake.
