The OCP was adopted by bylaw in 2010 following a series of public information sessions and a formal public hearing. It can only be amended or replaced by bylaw, again following a public hearing. Although the OCP allows considerable room for interpretation, the Municipal Council cannot enact any other bylaw or policy which is not in compliance with the OCP unless the current OCP is amended or replaced. Our current OCP was amended in 2019 by the Official Community Plan Amending Bylaw No. 1111, 2019.
In addition to setting future land use patterns, the OCP also designates certain sensitive areas within the municipality, which can only be built on or subdivided after first obtaining a development permit from Council.
More detailed information can be found on the Ministry of Community, Sports and Cultural Development's website.
