Burnside Gorge's Response to the City of Victoria's Draft Official Community Plan

Victoria's Official Community Plan

In 2011, after hearing from more than 4,700 people, the City of Victoria prepared a draft Official Community Plan. The plan provides direction for growth and change in Victoria over the next 30 years to move towards a more sustainable community. Council, staff, the business community and citizens will refer to the Official Community Plan for guidance on decisions such as where to locate housing and businesses, when to repair and replace the city’s aging infrastructure, and how the city will respond to climate change.

The draft Plan focuses future population growth and new housing in the downtown and urban core area and throughout neighbourhood villages and town centres. Focusing density in these areas allows for services and daily needs to be provided within a short walk from home and supports a community where people are less reliant on cars.

After more than a year of research and engagement with the community, the City of Victoria completed a draft Official Community Plan.

From April to June 2011, the community was asked to provide feedback on this draft plan.
