Hemlock Valley OCP
What is an Official Community Plan?
An OCP is a blueprint for the future development of a community. It outlines policies, regulations, and decisions about land use and development. It also takes into account the economic, environmental, and social well-being of a community and provides for amenities and services.
Why Are We Updating Our OCP?
In 2016 the Province (Mountain Resorts Branch) approved an All-Seasons Master Plan for Hemlock. This master plan proposes to significantly expand the current resort base on Crown lands through a five-phase development. Such a significant change needs to be reflected in our Official Community Plan.
Where Are We In The Process?
An early version of the draft was made available for review and comment in late 2019 and extensive feedback was received from the community. The new draft below reflects this feedback and has now been given first reading by the Regional Board. Check it out and let us know what you think.
