What is the Official Community Plan (OCP)?
The Summerland Official Community Plan is a document that guides the District’s decisions concerning planning and land use management in accordance with Chapter 323, Section 875 (1) of the Local Government Act. Specifically, the OCP provides:
- A clear vision for Summerland’s future growth with supporting goals, objectives and policies;
- A direction aligned with current community values and development patterns, and
- The anticipation of infrastructure capacity and future needs.
The OCP also recognizes existing conditions and trends, notably the importance of the natural environment, regional and community growth management, and the preservation and enhancement of Summerland’s social character and sense of place.
