Welcome!

SUBASE New London, Town of Groton, City of Groton, Ledyard, Waterford, Montville, New London, and the Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SCCOG) are working together to conduct the SUBASE New London Joint Land Use Study (JLUS), a 12-month effort primarily funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), with contributions from participating municipalities.

A JLUS is a cooperative land use planning effort between local government and military installations which aims to ensure lasting compatibility of military installations and the neighboring communities. The study leads to a policy framework and implementation measures to support a healthy economy, environment, and community, while safeguarding the military mission.

Project Goals

  • Compatible community development. Encourage cooperative land use planning between SUBASE New London and the surrounding communities to ensure future civilian growth and development are compatible with military training and operations. Collaborate to support waterfront economic development. 
  • Reduced operational impacts on adjacent lands. Seek ways to reduce the Installation’s impact on its neighbors and protect the public health, safety, and welfare of those living near an active military installation.
