What is an Official Community Plan

What does the future of Peachland look like? What are the community's priorities? How will we plan for future growth? What will future developments look like? How will we become more sustainable? All of these questions and more are answered within a municipality's Official Community Plan.

An Official Community Plan is a Community's overarching visionary document that plans for future growth and change over a 20-30 year period. All other local plans, policies, strategies and regulations related to land use fall under the umbrella of the Official Community Plan. This means that neighbourhood plans, sector plans, transportation plans, parks and recreation plans, zoning regulations and others must be consistent with the municipality's Official Community Plan.
