The North Shore Neighbourhood Plan was last updated in 2008. Since then, the North Shore has experienced population growth, demand for new development, and pressure for expanded community and social services.
In 2018, Council adopted a revised Official Community Plan (KAMPLAN), which sets the direction for growth and development for the city, including the North Shore. The updated North Shore Neighbourhood Plan address new community and land use needs that have arisen on the North Shore since 2008, and also ensures growth and development in the area is aligned with the goals and vision of the revised KAMPLAN.
The updated plan provides direction to guide planning and land use management for the North Shore Neighbourhood Plan area.
The planning process for the North Shore Neighbourhood Plan consisted of three phases:
Phase 1 involved collecting background research, including demographic, employment, transportation, and land use information.
Phase 2 involved the creation of a community vision, identification of key issues, opportunities, and priorities to address in the plan.
Phase 3 consisted of developing policy directions, development guidelines, a draft plan, and a final plan.
The process involves ongoing engagement with the public, stakeholders, and Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc at key stages of plan development. To learn more about the engagement approach, view the North Shore Plan Community Engagement Strategy here.
City staff conducted youth engagement with NorKam Senior Secondary students in September and October of 2020. The students created photojournals of places around the North Shore that resonate and are meaningful for them. Click here to view the results of this project via a interactive map.
