Plan Update Status
The draft Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan (BLNP) has been prepared in consultation with area residents, and stakeholders and feedback from Council. The draft Plan is now ready to be presented to the public for a final round of consultation to provide opportunities for review and feedback by residents.
Draft Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan
The third round - Phase 3 - of public consultation on the draft BLNP and land use concept will take place in February (dates to be announced shortly). Staff will then report back to Council on feedback received and any proposed refinements, and finally bring forward a finalized draft BLNP for Council consideration of adoption (following a Public Hearing) by mid-2017.
The draft BLNP builds on key learnings from previous neighbourhood planning processes, and includes new policy directions that recognize the influence of the Evergreen Line on shaping future growth, provide improved land use certainty within Burquitlam-Lougheed neighbourhoods, and include land uses that accommodate a range of development forms and residential types that transition out from the Evergreen Line.
A key Plan enhancement involves more robust urban design policy (Section 4) to ensure new development has a high-degree of architectural excellence that recognizes/capitalizes on ‘landmark’ sites, is walkable and transit supportive, and enhances neighbourhood character with active ground-floors, human-scale design and public open spaces and plazas.
