Local trust committees set their priorities and manage their community planning projects using a work program. Top priority projects on the LTC's work program have resources in place, or resources which will be soon available. Projects may be significant and long term, such as an Official Community Plan Review, or relatively minor, such as an amendment to a regulation in a Land Use Bylaw.
The intent of the project is, over several phases, to review and potentially amend policies and regulations to encourage and support affordable housing on Galiano Island. In the first phase, a Housing Needs Assessment and Special Advisory Planning Commission report have been completed that provide an understanding of affordable housing needs on Galiano Island.
The next phase of the LTC Project is to review policies and regulations related to short term vacation rentals.
