OCP is a Local Government Planning acronym that stands for “Official Community Plan”.
The Local Government Act defines an official community plan (OCP) as a general statement of the broad objectives and policies of the local government respecting the form and character of existing and proposed land use and servicing requirements in the area covered by the plan. It must consider anticipated housing needs, schools, service requirements, public facilities, location and requirements for commercial, industrial, agricultural and other land uses, and restrictions on lands that are environmentally sensitive or hazardous.
An OCP is a long-term strategy for land use management, development, and servicing. This document is created by the community in dialogue with locally elected commission and committee members, and is intended to serve as a statement of the objectives and policies of the local government. The goals of an OCP are implemented through its zoning bylaw. See more on the Official Community Plans page.
For information regarding the CSRD’s Official Community Plans (OCP), visit the Official Community Plans page. For information regarding the CSRD’s Zoning & Land Use Bylaws, visit the Zoning Land Use Bylaws page.
