Official Community Plans

CVRD's Long Term Vision, Policies, Priorities, and Guidelines

An Official Community Plan (OCP) does two important things - it presents a long-term vision for a community, and sets out policies, priorities and guidelines for land use and community development. An OCP is a document adopted as a bylaw by the CVRD Board of Directors and approved by the BC Minister of Community, Aboriginal, and Womens Services.

The OCP is designed to uphold the community's common interests, by establishing goals, objectives, and policies for the physical development of the area. These policies are crafted to strike a fair balance between community needs, the needs of individual residents, and economic and environmental matters.
