Important Public Meeting CVRD Harmonized Plan

The CVRD is harmonizing and modernizing its Official Community Plan, and we want to hear from you!

The CVRD began this process by “harmonizing” our existing electoral area OCPs into one Regional OCP and is now moving towards modernizing that OCP to address regional trends.

The result of this process will be a Regional OCP that will set the foundation for the Cowichan Valley to be an attractive place to live work, and play for years to come.

The current drafts of the  he Harmonized Official Community Plan (HOCP) 3.0. and Schedule C – Development Permit Areas 2.0. Note: OCP definitions will be included in the Zoning Bylaw modernization.
