Notice of amendment: Land Use Plan

November 10, 2020

On October 27, 2020, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority board of directors approved an amendment to the land use plan.

The amendment incorporated two property acquisitions; one in North Vancouver and one in Surrey. The amendment also designated a previously undesignated port authority site in Delta, and re-designated a portion of an existing port authority site in Delta.

These sites have been re-designated with a port authority land use designation as follows:

  • Newly acquired sites:
    • 1443 Dominion Street, North Vancouver (re-designated port terminal)
    • 10566 Scott Road, Surrey (re-designated industrial)
  • Previously undesignated port authority site:
    • L. 851 (area southeast and adjacent to Deltaport Terminal 1), Delta (designated port terminal)
  • Re-designated port authority site:
    • Adjacent to the parcel fronting 8911 and 8910 River Road, Delta (re-designated industrial)

Under the Canada Marine Act, the port authority is required to add all land purchases to our land use plan, and give sites a land use designation by way of a formal amendment.

All Canada Port Authorities are required to have a land use plan, which is a high-level policy document and framework to guide the development of a port authority’s land and waters for the next 15 to 20 years. It is similar to a municipal official community plan and identifies the types of uses that are appropriate within different areas of the port authority’s jurisdiction.

Public consultation on this year’s amendment took place from June 1 to August 1, 2020. Details of the amended properties are available in the notice of decision as well as the consultation summary report posted on the land use planning section of the port authority’s website.
