2018 Land Use Plan Amendments

About the Land Use Plan

The 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, as set out in the Canada Marine Act, is to facilitate Canada’s trade objectives; ensuring goods are moved safely, while protecting the environment and considering local communities.

Land Use Plan Amendments

Over the past year, we have acquired sites in:

  • District of North Vancouver
  • Port Coquitlam
  • Delta
  • Richmond
  • Surrey

The port has also divested land from the District of North Vancouver, Delta and Surrey.

We are now required by the Canada Marine Act to add the newly acquired lands to our Land Use Plan by way of an amendment and give them a port authority land use designation. Similarly, the divested lands must be removed from our Land Use Plan, as they are no longer under port jurisdiction.

Our Land Use Plan includes eight different land and water designations. 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.
