Official Community Plan Bylaw 8383, 2011

The myPG Sustainability Plan has provided significant guidance in the development of the OCP and were utilized to frame the vision and objectives for economic, environmental, social, and land use development.

As a critical planning tool, council, staff and citizens use the OCP to help make decisions on things such as where we locate housing, what our transportation priorities are, which lands we protect from development, how we protect development from hazards, and how we provide services for more sustainable development over the next 15 years.

What is an OCP?

  • An OCP is a statement of objectives and policies to guide decisions on planning and land use management within the City.
  • As a general rule, it is reviewed annually and completely revised every 5 to 10 years.
  • Although the OCP does not commit or authorize a municipality to proceed with any project specified in the plan and does not have an immediate effect on property rights (eg. existing zoning regulations will continue to apply), the OCP can have consequences that may increase the regulatory burden of developing a property (eg. Designation of development permit areas). 
  • In addition, all bylaws enacted or works undertaken by Council after adoption of an OCP must be consistent with the plan.
