VCAN Statement on OCP Amendments

Posted on May 10th, 2019 · Posted in City Hall, Land Use, Letters, News

The member associations of the Victoria Community Association Network (VCAN) are united in requesting Council and Staff follow best practices in land use planning by unequivocally upholding the Official Community Plan (OCP). The OCP is the foundation planning document that governs long term planning and sustainability goals citywide.

Members of VCAN are concerned that requests for OCP amendments are coming forward on an ad hoc basis with little public consultation and are being considered by Council without the demonstration of a compelling public benefit.
