The Denman Island Farm Plan was a multi-year endeavour “initiated to enhance and preserve farming in the region and work towards increased farm production that is both sustainable and resilient.” Implementation of the Denman Island Farm Plan was identified as a Local Trust Committee (LTC) Top Priority in January 2015. In November 2016 the LTC considered potential amendments to the Official Community Plan (OCP) and Land Use Bylaw (LUB) and referred potential amendments to the Denman Island Advisory Planning Commission and to the Denman Growers and Producers Alliance for input. In 2017 the LTC updated the scope and objectives of the project to inform the preparation of two amending bylaws. Proposed Bylaw No. 228 would amend the Denman Island Official Community Plan and Proposed Bylaw No. 229 would amend the Denman Island Land Use Bylaw. Both bylaws were given First Reading in May 2018 and a public hearing is anticipated as early as winter 2018/19.
