Nanaimo Airport Land Use Bylaw Updates

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Regional District of Nanaimo is proposing to amend the Regional Growth Strategy, Electoral Area A Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw No. 500 for lands owned by the Nanaimo Airport Commission to both recognize the existing airport operations and to facilitate future commercial development on the portion of land fronting the Trans-Canada Highway at Spitfire Road.

The Nanaimo Airport is a regional transportation hub and important part of the Central Vancouver Island economy. The Nanaimo Airport Commission, who owns and operates the Airport, has a land use plan that includes expanding the airport terminal and airside commercial for aviation and aviation light industrial, and developing land adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway for commercial uses, passenger flow, and parking.
