Official Community Plan


Vision for Electoral Area A

Metro Vancouver has developed an Official Community Plan (OCP) for portions of Electoral Area A. This plan contains land use map designations and policies that together set out the long term vision for communities. The plan was adopted by the Metro Vancouver Board in July 2018 and provides guidance to the public, developers, Metro Vancouver staff, other orders of government, and elected representatives when considering land use changes, such as proposals for new development.​​

​​The Electoral Area A Official Community Plan applies to all areas other than the University of British Columbia (the Board of Governors is responsible for planning), the University Endowment Lands (the provincial government is responsible), Bowyer Island, and Passage Island (the Islands Trust is responsible). This plan does not apply to First Nations Reserves. Because Electoral Area A is comprised of diverse communities, the discussions and policies have been tailored to ensure that the plan addresses issues that are important to each local community.
