OUR CITY 2041: New Westminster's Official Community Plan

The Official Community Plan (OCP) provides a vision, goals, and policies for New Westminster to the year 2041. Together, these elements connect the community’s “big picture” aspiration with the tools needed to achieve it, including specific actions, development permit guidelines, and land use designations. This Plan is implemented by the City in various ways, including through policy initiatives, public programs, civic projects, and bylaws. Implementation also occurs privately through avenues such as development and citizen action groups.
