Vancouver Fraser Port Authority board of directors approve amendments to Land Use Plan
The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority board of directors has approved amendments to the port authority’s Land Use Plan to add the following properties:
- 1441 Dominion Street, North Vancouver
- 1305 and 1375 Kingsway Avenue, Port Coquitlam
- Roberts Bank Water Lot and Causeway, Delta
- Rail Expansion Lands, Delta
- South Fraser Perimeter Road Lands, Delta
- 11480 River Road, Richmond
- 10935 Timberland Road and 10960 – 10984 Olsen Road, Surrey
We add all land purchases to our land use plan by way of formal amendment. The amendment process is set out in the Canada Marine Act and requires public notification, consultation and approval by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority board of directors.
All Canada Port Authorities are required to have a Land Use Plan, which is a high level policy document similar to a municipal official community plan and includes goals, policies and land use designations to guide planning in all the areas across the port authority’s jurisdiction. The plan also provides clarity for neighbouring residents and communities on long-term development for all federal lands managed by the port authority.
