Vancouver hosts open houses on Land Use Plan

(Posted on 24/04/19)

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is hosting two public open houses on the following proposed amendments to its Land Use Plan:

The port authority recently acquired three properties in Vancouver, Surrey and Delta.

The port authority entered into a long-term lease (60 years) with the Province of B.C. on a site in Delta.

The designation of a current port authority site needs to be changed.

Under the Canada Marine Act, the port authority is required to add all land purchases to its Land Use Plan by way of formal amendment.

The amendment process is set out in the Canada Marine Act and requires public notification and consultation. A public consultation period will be held from Monday, 29 April to Saturday, 29 June, 2019. The port authority invites the public to provide feedback on the proposed amendments by attending an open house or reviewing the material online.
