Official Community Plan

Our Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw contain policies to ensure development in the City is conducted in an orderly fashion.  The OCP provides objectives and policies to guide short and long term planning and land use management within the City’s boundaries.  The Zoning Bylaw controls the use of land and is legally enforceable. It puts the plan within the OCP into effect. Examples of what is included in the Zoning Bylaw include: 

  • how land may be used
  • where buildings and other structures can be located
  • the types of land uses that are permitted on a property
  • the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, and setbacks from the street.
