Planning & Development

 

What Happens in the Planning Division?

The Development Services Planning Division proactively develops and facilitates planning, investment in the community and regulatory strategies that are designed to make New Westminster a complete, balanced and livable community. We provide strategic community and social planning to foster a great place for living, working and leisure. This involves neighbourhood, urban environment, social and heritage planning, and management of the development approvals process. Our work is intended to achieve three equally important and interdependent outcomes, the core elements of the City’s vision for the future:

  • Employment - a prosperous city with a strong, vibrant and robust economic base;
  • Day-to-Day Living - a liveable city of safe, healthy and inclusive neighbourhoods;
  • Leisure - a city of high-quality urban design with recreational, arts and cultural amenities for residents, employees and visitors.
