Land Use Plan Amendments

Land Use Plan Amendment: Notice of Decision

On September 13, 2016, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority board of directors approved the proposed amendments to the Land Use Plan for industrial properties acquired by the port authority over the past year. These include a group of three properties in Richmond, and another two properties in Delta.


About the Land Use Plan

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority manages more than 16,000 hectares of water, more than 1,000 hectares of land and approximately 350 kilometres of shoreline within the Port of Vancouver. Our mandate is to facilitate Canada’s trade objectives; ensuring goods are moved safely, while protecting the environment and considering local communities.

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.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s most recent Land Use Plan was adopted in 2014 and was developed in consultation with more than 1,000 people, representing municipalities, Aboriginal groups, government agencies, environmental organizations, businesses, industries and members of the public.

Our Land Use Plan includes eight different land and water designations (see page 44 of the Land Use Plan for more information). These designations guide the development and management of the areas within the port lands and waters, and provide clarity on long-term development for all port lands.
