Not as comprehensive plan as it should be. This is more of an report with some proposals for short term mitigation - as specified in the report itself: "This report outlines a Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) for North Arm Cove village. The SMP outlines a range of actions that are considered to be appropriate for mitigating current stormwater management issues and avoiding potential additional issues associated with further development. The SMP discusses a range of short term and long term actions. The short term actions focus on improving the management of stormwater quality and quantity in the existing village. Issues identified by the community indicate that improvement of stormwater drainage and the integrity of the drainage system should be a key focus of the short term actions. The long term actions focus on improving the planning of stormwater quality and quantity management systems as a component of any potential future development in the undeveloped lots. Long term actions also include improvement of stormwater quality at key central locations in the existing North Arm Cove village." Long term actions are related to expanding the village. Pland also doesn't include options for re-use, recycling of storm water on communal level.
