Regional Growth Strategy Amendment
Bylaw 1615.03

Pursuant to Section 437 of the Local Government Act and Section 1.5.2 of the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS), the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) advises of a public hearing regarding an amendment for "Regional District of Nanaimo Regional Growth Strategy Bylaw No. 1615.03, 2018", (Bylaw No. 1615.03).

Meeting Details

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 6:00 pm
Regional District of Nanaimo - Board Chambers
6300 Hammond Bay Road, Nanaimo, BC

Purpose of the Bylaw

Bylaw No. 1615.03 makes several minor changes to the RGS that apply to the Town of Qualicum Beach only, resulting from a review of the Town's Official Community Plan (OCP). In general terms, the RGS amendments are as follows:
  • the Growth Containment Boundary (GCB) be moved so that it is contiguous with the Town of Qualicum Beach's municipal boundary and
  • all land within the Town of Qualicum Beach's municipal boundary will be designated Urban Area in the RGS.
If approved, Bylaw No. 1615.03 will amend the RGS Bylaw by locating the GCB at the Town boundary while retaining an Urban Containment Boundary that surrounds the areas where the majority of new growth will take place within the municipality.
