Bylaws

Overview

Land use planning is the management of land and resources. It helps communities set goals about how to manage change while keeping important social, economic, and environmental concerns in mind.

It balances the interests of individual property owners with the Islands Trust preserve and protect mandate, and the wider interests and objectives of the whole community. Official community plans, land use bylaws and zoning bylaws are land use planning tools.

North Pender Island Local Trust Area Official Community Plans

An official community plan provides a vision, goals, objectives, and policies for how the community will manage change. The official community plan (OCP) guides planning and decision making about land use and related community priorities. Developed in consultation with community members and organizations, First Nations, and provincial agencies, OCPs also reflect the Islands Trust preserve and protect mandate.

Each OCP is unique to the community or island it serves, but it must include:

  • Residential development plans
  • Defined land uses:
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Agricultural
  • Recreational
  • Public utility
  • Sand and gravel deposits suitable for extraction
  • Land use restrictions due to environmental sensitivity or hazards
  • Road, sewer and water systems plans
  • Proposed public facilities (public facilities, parks, schools, waste treatment, disposal sites)
