Official Community Plan Review

Updated September 2018

In early 2017, the District began a collaborative review of its 2004 Official Community Plan. Over 18 months, through a four-phase public engagement process, staff worked with the community to develop a plan for the future of West Vancouver. Council adopted the Official Community Plan in 2018, giving West Vancouver a vital planning tool for the next decade and more.

The next steps for OCP implementation will include the development of local area plans for key centres and corridors.

  • Marine Drive Local Area Plan and Design Guidelines were adopted by Council in 2017.
  • Local Area Plans for Ambleside, Taylor Way, Horseshoe Bay and Cypress Village will follow. The process of each of these plans will vary based on the scope and unique character and conditions of each area.
  • Policies on transportation, the local economy, parks and environment and social well-being have also been reviewed within scope of OCP.
