The Regional Growth Strategy is structured around 5 key goals that are outlined below. Each of the goals has several strategies and policies within it that give further detail of how these goals will be achieved and the actions expected of Metro Vancouver, member municipalities and other levels of government. From these goals also come the other key pieces of the Regional Growth Strategy, the Land Use Designations and Overlays.
Land Use Designations and Overlays are planning tools used in the Regional Growth Strategy which support the achievement of the plan’s goals and strategies. These designations and overlays guide future land use decisions. The intent statements below describe the purpose for each designation or overlay and the maps show their location on a parcel-basis.
Provided below is an overview of the Goals, Land Use Designations, Overlays and links to detailed parcel-based maps of the region. Please follow the links for the actual Regional Growth Strategy to see all the detail.
