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.

Density Donation Outreach Program

The Gabriola Island Local Trust Committee has initiated a new project for the 2021/2022 budget year to encourage “density donations” to the Gabriola Density Bank! Property owners from Gabriola Island and the Flat Top islands who wish to voluntarily reduce their density (or subdivision potential) are being offered a streamlined planning approach coordinated by Islands Trust staff.  For more information see About the Project, below.
