Staff are currently working on completing a draft plan and are planning to present the Draft Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan for public feedback this spring.
More information will be posted on this website as it becomes available with opportunities to provide feedback. Sign up for notifications.
Great neighbourhoods are great because of community involvement, careful planning, and thoughtful urban design. The Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan (LAP) will guide growth and future development in the local area and the Cadboro Bay Village for the next 20 to 30 years.
