An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a comprehensive statement of goals, objectives and policies to guide decisions on planning and land use management across the lands covered by the Plan. OCPs provide a coordinated action strategy so that property owners, developers and others can evaluate their respective land development plans, undertake projects and make more informed decisions. Similar to rezoning, OCPs can only be changed via a bylaw process, including an involved consultation and public hearing process. See below and the supplemental FAQ Sheets under the Zoning & Land Use Contracts tab for more information.
The TNRD currently has 11 OCPs covering approximately 5% of TNRD unincorporated lands.
