Centre Plan

Centre Plan Package A version Feb 23, 2018 image

Welcome to the Centre Plan project!
Update – July 2018

Thanks for your input and ongoing support for the Centre Plan. On July 25, 2018 the Community Design Advisory Committee (CDAC) completed its review of comments and submissions received through the engagement process on draft Package A. Through the summer, the Centre Plan Team will begin to make changes to the draft documents based on the feedback received and the discussions had at CDAC over June & July. The team will return to the Community Design Advisory Committee in the fall with the next draft of the Package A documents, having had all changes drafted and reviewed by internal stakeholders.

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
