That the Board not accept the Township of Langley’s Regional Context Statement as
submitted to the Metro Vancouver Board on July 23, 2013, based on the following
objections:
a) Regional Context Statement section 1.3 ‘Regional Land Use Designations’ is
inconsistent with section 866(2) (b) of the Local Government Act.
b) Regional Context Statement Map A-1, RGS Land Use, is inconsistent with the
Regional Growth Strategy Land Use Designations map (Map 2).
c) Regional Context Statement section 1.1.7 ‘Agricultural Land Reserve’ implies
that the Township may amend its OCP in order to permit zoning to proceed,
despite the fact that the subject land is designated Rural or Agricultural in
the Township’s Regional Context Statement and the Regional Growth
Strategy.
d) Regional Context Statement section 1.4 ‘Role of Municipalities’ contains a
statement that the Township’s OCP policies referenced in the Regional
Context Statement are not substantive policies of the Regional Context
Statement and thus, the Township’s Regional Context Statement does not
respond to the Regional Growth Strategy’s goals, strategies and actions.

That the Board request that the Minister Responsible for Core Review and the
Minister of Agriculture:
a) ensure the Provincial Core Review process protects and enhances the
