The Regional Growth Strategy is amended from time to time at the direction of the RDN Board. Amendments may be initiated by the RDN or requested by a member municipality.

The amendment of a regional growth strategy may proceed in one of two ways: through a regular amendment process or a minor amendment process. Click Here to view a comparison of these two types of amendments.

Current Amendments Under Consideration:

Amendment to Implement the Electoral Area 'H' Official Community Plan
The Electoral Area 'H' Official Community Plan (OCP) Amendment Bylaw 1335.06 was adopted on December 12, 2017 after a two-year review process with extensive community engagement. To implement several policies and map changes resulting from the OCP Review, an amendment to the Regional Growth Strategy is required. The required amendment meets the criteria for minor amendments and can proceed through the process for approving minor amendments.

The RDN intends to consider first reading of a bylaw to amend the Regional Growth Strategy at its Regular Board Meeting on April 24, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the Board Chambers at 6300 Hammond Bay Road, Nanaimo.
