Local trust committee community planning projects are proactive initiatives that further the preserve and protect mandate. Projects can be significant and long term, such as an Official Community Plan Review, or may be relatively minor, such as an amendment to a regulation in a Land Use Bylaw.

Denman Farming Regulation Review

This project hopes to enhance and preserve farming activities on the island through updates to the Denman Island Official Community Plan policies and Land Use Bylaw regulations. The project is focused on implementing three recommendations from the Denman Farm Plan (recommendations 11, 13 and 14). The Denman Island Farming Regulation Review Project (originally named the Farm Plan Implementation Project) has been a top priority project for Denman Island since 2015; however, it was put on hold due to lack of resources. This project was recently awarded a contribution grant and has been rejuvenated. It is funded in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Government of British Columbia through programs delivered by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of B.C.

Denman Housing Review Project

A detailed outline and current status of the project is available on our newspage, which is updated regularly. Archived documents affiliated with the project are found below.

The Denman Island Housing Review Project commenced in April 2022. The first phase of the project is now underway. Consultants are engaging with the Advisory Planning Commission (APC), Denman Island community members and stakeholders to assist in identifying necessary updates to the Denman Island Official Community Plan and Land Use Bylaw to increase housing options for affordable and attainable housing. The Denman Island Local Trust Committee will be evaluating the recommendations for policy and regulatory amendments to ensure they minimize impacts of housing generally to better protect the environment while supporting equity, diversity and inclusion.
