Official Community Plan Amendment

In assessing your development proposal an amendment to the Official Community Plan may be necessary, whether it is an amendment to the text of the document or a change to the land use designation. When applying for an amendment to the Official Community Plan for a change in the land designation or applying to have the text amended, an amendment to the Zoning Bylaw may also be necessary and these two types of application can be processed together. As part of the application process, all of these types of applications are forwarded to a Public Hearing in order to provide all interested parties the opportunity to address Council.

To assess what applies to your proposal please set up an appointment for a pre-application meeting with the Development Services Staff who will be happy to assist you in filling out your formal application.

You may wish to present your proposal to the Development Review Committee before submitting your formal application. The Development Review Committee is made up of various departmental staff members and meets every two weeks. This provides an opportunity for applicants to present a development proposal and discuss with staff the feasibility of the proposal before submitting formal applications.

As the information shown on the map may not always be fully up to date the map is provided for information only and should not be relied upon as authoritative. Please confirm OCP designations and zoning through the Development Services Department.

For all application types there are minimum submission requirements.  The City does not accept incomplete applications.  To make sure there are no avoidable delays, you should ensure that you have the following:
