Landslide zones

Areas prone to landslide zones are areas where land use is subject to special constraints, depending on the composition and nature of the soil, to reduce the risk of landslides. To ensure the general well-being, health and public safety of all its citizens, the Municipality of Chelsea must therefore ensure the management of uses and activities on its territory based on these physical characteristics.
