The Planning Services Department works proactively to address current and future planning challenges and opportunities, and to provide direction for decision-making that will lead to long term environmental, economic, social, and cultural sustainability.
Planning Services works closely with other City departments to:
Implement and update the Sustainable Official Community Plan (SOCP),
Develop policies and regulations to support the SOCP and our Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP),
Encourage the development of housing of all types and tenures, including affordable housing, and
Protect our heritage resources.
Check out our Get Involved page to learn more about community planning initiatives that are underway.
Staff are available to assist with planning inquiries during office hours. Feel free to make an appointment to ensure that the person best able to assist you is available.
