The District of Sechelt adopted its new Official Community Plan (OCP) on July 20, 2011, following more than two years of review and discussion with Council and community residents. This new OCP replaces the previous plan adopted in 1995.
The OCP provides an overall framework guide to future development and well-being of the District. It contains detailed policies and objectives regarding future land use, environmental protection, housing, economic development, transportation and infrastructure, parks and open spaces, heritage and community services.
The OCP will be guiding Council's decisions. The OCP's future land use designations do not directly apply to property owners. Current land use is regulated under the zoning bylaw.
