OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN & ZONING BYLAW UPDATES
The District of Vanderhoof is in the process of updating the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw! The Official Community Plan (OCP) is a roadmap that provides a clear direction on how the community will look and feel in the future. The new OCP will provide a brand new vision for Vanderhoof to 2040 by refining and updating land uses, creating new mapping and policies which better reflect the new vision and clearly defining where development is to be accommodated and supported via existing infrastructure and amenities.
The Zoning Bylaw is a “rule book” that controls land use and development. It regulates exactly how land may be used, where buildings and other structures can be located, the types of buildings that are permitted, lot sizes and dimension, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street. The Zoning Bylaw is a major implementation tool of the Official Community Plan, which is why it is being updated alongside the OCP.
