Local Area Plan Updates

We are currently undergoing updates for two Local Area Plans:

How Saanich is updating its Local Area Plans

On September 11, 2017, Council approved a program to update all Saanich Local Area Plans.  The updated plans will help provide direction for growth and change in neighbourhoods and implement the directions of the Official Community Plan.

On November 27, 2017 Council will consider a Report with Terms of Reference [PDF - 1.7 MB] for the Cordova Bay Local Area Plan update and the Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan update.

Each Local Area planning process will have intensive community involvement and will take approximately 18 months to complete. Local Area Plans will be updated according to the following schedule.

  • Starting in 2017 – Cordova Bay, Cadboro Bay
  • Starting in 2019 – North Quadra, Quadra
  • Starting in 2020 – Gordon Head, Carey
  • Starting in 2021 – Royal Oak, Tillicum
  • Starting in 2022 – Shelbourne, Blenkinsop
  • Starting in 2023 – Rural Saanich
