The 30-year Official Community Plan (OCP) is the primary guiding document for the Neighbourhood Plan. The OCP focuses on vibrant, walkable villages. It introduces a new approach to land-use management by recognizing the unique neighbourhood character and sense of place of different parts of the City and emphasizes sustainable transportation such as walking, cycling, and transit.
The Victoria West neighbourhood plan is the second of 10 plans to be launched using the new, accelerated approach. The plans will use a collaborative planning and engagement process with the community. Each neighbourhood will be asked how they would like to be involved in their neighbourhood plan.
