Area H – OCP Review This website will be updated throughout the project, so check back here to stay informed. Click here to sign up for email alerts when new content is added about this OCP review project.

You can also follow the RDN on Twitter and Facebook where news is posted about things going on in all of the RDN.

Have your say and submit comments online, attend public meetings, visit our Area OCP office in Bowser, or send us an email or letter.


We will use a series of online surveys as one way of getting input from the community on a variety of topics for the OCP Review. The first survey was open from January 14 to February 10 and is now closed. A report on the survey response has been created and you can click to open it below.
