Housekeeping OCP Amendments for Areas A and H

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

Proposed amendments to the Electoral Area A Official Community Plan (OCP) and the Electoral Area H OCP are to complete the Development Permit and Temporary Use Permit Area Standardization project from 2018 by correcting technical errors. Correcting these technical errors will provide clarity for development applicants as was intended by the project. These changes are:



For Electoral Area A, Bylaw No. 1620.07

  • The Temporary Use Permit section is deleted from the Official Community Plan because it was previously moved to the zoning bylaw.
  • The South Wellington Light Industrial and Commercial Area is added to the Aquifers Development Permit Area (DPA) shape in Map No. 9, as it was previously omitted from the map.

For Electoral Area H, Bylaw No. 1335.08

  • For the Hazard Lands DPA and the Bowser Village Centre DPA, the applicability, exemptions and guidelines sections are deleted because they were previously moved to the zoning bylaw.
