As part of Phase 1 OCP project activities, the District of Saanich is looking for public input on preliminary ideas around changes to District land use policies to address emerging priorities. This is a focused survey and does not cover the full project scope. Survey topics include:

  • New housing forms in neighbourhoods (through residential infill);
  • Land uses along major roads/corridors; and,
  • Building complete, walkable communities.

How to Participate:

  • Complete the online survey now! It should take about 10-15 minutes. The survey will close on September 25, 2022.
  • Request a paper copy if needed by contacting or 250-475-5494 ext. 3452.
  • Learn more about the Strategic OCP update on our project webpage.

Other Notes/Next Steps:

  • A Project Q&A document is now available. Please reach out if you have suggestions on additional topics to add.
  • A summary of the initial input collected at the June workshops/Advisory Committee meetings and through the public survey will be released in the fall.
  • Staff will work with this early input and provide draft policies for extensive public review and feedback in early 2023 through a range of participation opportunities. The next round of community input will cover all aspects of the Strategic Official Community Plan Update.
