The District is seeking community input on zoning regulations for various types of infill housing.

About the project: In the spring of 2018, we started a community conversation about future growth management through residential infill and densification. With community feedback and research in hand, we are drafting a new Housing Policy that will help shape the update of our Official Community Plan, and will lead to updated design guidelines and the establishment of development permit areas, as well as amendments to the Land Use Bylaw.

The infill study has looked at:

    • densification of village centres,
    • small lot infill,
    • duplexes,
    • panhandle lot subdivisions,
    • carriage houses,
    • tiny houses,
    • multi-use four-stories,
    • and a review of existing zoning regulations to remove any barriers to housing.

In the summer of 2019, we came back to the community with draft guidelines and policies. At open houses and through a survey, we gathered feedback from the public. Now we are preparing a What We Heard report to share with you, and then we will be working on recommendations for Council to consider.

We want your input!

  1. Please read the proposed regulations for infill housing here.
  2. Ask questions and offer feedback by emailing planning@csaanich.ca or calling the Planning Department at 250-544-4209.

Please use the selection of pins to show us what you would like to see.

The grey areas are neighbourhoods within the urban settlement area (as defined by our Official Community Plan), and this is the area where infill and densification could potentially take place.
