Funding available for Integrated OCPs

Real Estate Foundation of BC

Are you a BC community with a population of 10,000 and under? Are you planning to update your OCP in 2015? Would you like to better integrate sustainability into your OCP update? If so, we may be able to help!

We have just received some grant funding from the Real Estate Foundation to support two small BC communities with an ‘Integrated OCP’ update, aligning sustainability goals into the regulatory land use plan.
