Community Planning

Community Planning focuses on preparing and updating land use plans, strategies, policies, regulations, and special studies to guide the location and construction of new development in Abbotsford. With a city-wide and long term picture in mind, this involves engagement with residents and stakeholders, collaboration with other City departments, and discussions with City Council.

Official Community Plan (OCP)

An Official Community Plan (OCP) is one of the City’s most important tools. It helps influence the way our community grows and develops by guiding how land can be used. Land use and development influence all parts of our daily lives: where we live, work and play.

The City is updating the OCP. Visit Abbotsforward 2050 Let's Talk Abbotsford to learn more and get involved.
