Official Community Plan Review

Updated January 2017

What's an Official Community Plan?

An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a Council-approved document for managing land use.

Why does it matter?

It matters to you because the OCP is the District's number one planning tool for the next five to ten years and because it touches citizens' lives in some way every da: how housing needs can be met, where shops, services and community facilities are located, how we move around, how we can protect the environment and how we respond to climate change.

Help us refresh it.

We're refreshing the OCP in 2017 & 2018. there will be lots of ways to get involved through in-person meetings and online surveys.

West Vancouver has a tremendous opportunity to plan for its future through a review of its Official Community Plan (OCP) and the development of a robust policy framework to guide planning decisions.

The review process will build upon the key principles and values of the existing 2004 plan, capture a decade of citizen working group input and engage the community and stakeholders on emerging issues like housing, local area plans and climate change.

To be completed in 2018, the OCP review will provide a number of opportunities for citizen engagement throughout the coming year as various policies are reviewed and local area plans are developed. Watch our website for OCP announcements or sign up for updates on future engagement events.
