Notice of Land Use Plan Amendments (June 2018)

Over the past year, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has acquired sites in the District of North Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, Delta, Richmond, and Surrey. The port authority has also divested a total of 13 lots located in the District of North Vancouver, Delta and Surrey.

We are required by the Canada Marine Act to add the newly acquired sites to our Land Use Plan by way of an amendment and give them a port authority land use designation. Similarly, the divested lands must be removed from our Land Use Plan.

Land acquired

The following sites have been acquired and will be included in this year’s Land Use Plan Amendments:

• 1441 Dominion Street, District of North Vancouver
• 1305 & 1375 Kingsway Avenue, Port Coquitlam
• Roberts Bank Water Lot and Causeway, Delta
• Rail Expansion Lands, Delta
• South Fraser Perimeter Road Lands, Delta
• 11480 River Road, Richmond
• 10935 Timberland Road and 10960 – 10984 Olsen Road, Surrey

Public consultation period

Before amendments to our Land Use Plan can be implemented, we are required by the Canada Marine Act to hold a 60 day public consultation period.

The comment period runs from Friday, June 15 to Wednesday, August 15. During that time we will hold three open houses as well as an online engagement process.

Land divested

The following sites are being removed from the port authority’s Land Use Plan as they are no longer under port authority jurisdiction:

About our Land Use Plan

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is responsible for the stewardship of federal port lands in and around Vancouver, British Columbia. Our mandate is to facilitate Canada’s trade objectives, ensuring goods are moved safely, while protecting the environment and considering local communities.

All Canadian port authorities are required to have a Land Use Plan, which is a high level policy document and framework to guide the development of a port authority’s land and waters for the next 15 to 20 years. It is similar to a municipal official community plan and identifies the types of uses that are appropriate within different areas of the port authority’s jurisdiction.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s most recent Land Use Plan was adopted in 2014 and was developed in consultation with more than 1,000 people, representing municipalities, Aboriginal groups, government agencies, environmental organizations, businesses, industries and members of the public.
