Oakdale Land Use Designation Update

About the Oakdale Land Use Designation Update

During the development of the Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan (BLNP), a series of land-use options were presented for different portions of the Burquitlam-Lougheed Plan area.  Feedback on these options was then used to develop the draft BLNP. 

Consensus was reached in most areas, with residents consistently supporting proposed land-use changes. In Oakdale (Sub Area A), however, there was little evidence of consensus among stakeholders. As a result Oakdale was designated a Future Planning Area in the BLNP with direction to review and determine appropriate land uses for the neighbourhood through a separate, future planning process.

Subsequent to the adoption of the BLNP, Coquitlam has received numerous petitions, letters and phone interactions with residents seeking the commencement of the Oakdale-specific planning process.  In addition, as an implementation action of the BLNP, the Oakdale update is included in the City of Coquitlam’s 2018 Business Plan.

The proposed Oakdale Land Use Designation Update will help guide development in the Oakdale neighbourhood for the next 25 years.  The project will involve extensive public consultation to ensure any proposed changes fit the vision of both neighbourhood residents and stakeholders.

How to get Involved

An essential part of creating a successful plan is dialogue with residents, landowners, developers, the business community, and community stakeholders.

The Oakdale Land Use Designation Update will include consultation through surveys, social media, community information sessions, public outreach, and distribution of electronic and print media.

We will be updating this webpage regularly with news on when and how to engage with us on the Plan update. See below on how to sign up for the email listserv and how to connect with the Planning and Development department at the City of Coquitlam.
