Centre Plan - Package A

Centre Plan

Centre Plan Package A version Feb 23, 2018 image

Welcome to the Centre Plan project!
Update – May 2018

The draft Package A Land Use By-law (LUB) and Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy (SMPS) documents have been released and our public consultation period has now concluded. Package A contains the first set of draft land use policies and regulations which focus on areas designated as Centres, Corridors, Higher Order Residential and Future Growth Nodes. Package A deals with standards for development, set backs, transitions, built-form and creating complete communities.

As of May, 2018, the Centre Plan Team will be reviewing the hundreds of submissions received through the engagement process, and using this feedback to inform changes to the draft document. We will be returning regularly to the Community Design Advisory Group over the course of the coming months to seek their input and provide updates as we work towards a revised version of the plan.

Want to get up to speed on the Centre Plan? Or refresh your memory? Visit the document library or view these videos.

The Centre Plan document is the direct result of feedback received through a significant public engagement program, input and guidance from the Community Design Advisory Committee and Regional Council, and a strong commitment by the Planning and Development team to modernize development rules to reflect the vision citizens have for their communities. After the fall 2016 release of the Draft Centre Plan, improvements were made to the following policy directions and themes to respond to what the community said was most important to them:

• Stronger protection for residential neighbourhoods, complete communities & heritage
• Design requirements to minimize impact of new development on existing communities
• Regulations to ensure balanced distribution of housing and population density
• Priority on pedestrians
• Access to parks & public amenities
Affordable housing
• Stronger requirements for sustainable design & building practices
• Regulations that will enable a strong economy
