What's an Official Community Plan? Why should you get involved in the OCP review that's underway? The OCP guides land use planning and sets out policies that touch citizen's lives in some way every day.

Planning for our Future

We are embarking on a review of our Official Community Plan (OCP) to help prepare the community for a resilient future, and we're involving the public as we review existing OCP policies within the context of today’s emerging issues, challenges, and trends. At key times throughout the OCP review process, you'll have the opportunity to share your opinions and ideas on the future of our community. You can learn more about this project by watching the video below and checking out the Updates section. Don't forget to click "Follow Project" to register for email updates.

  • Welcome!

    The District of Central Saanich is reviewing and updating its Official Community Plan (OCP), which was adopted in 2008.

    What’s an OCP? 

    The OCP presents the long-term vision for the community. It sets out objectives and policies that guide planning and land use management decisions. It helps us determine how and where we live, work, play and move.

    Why update our OCP? 

    We want to ensure the OCP:

    • reflects current values and priorities, 
    • addresses current and trending issues, and 
    • prepares the community for challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

    Your responses to the following questions will help the project team get a better sense of the community’s priorities. 

    No topic will be left out of the review and update process, but your responses will help us understand whether we need to focus our attention on any specific areas of interest.
