OUR CITY 2041: New Westminster's Official Community Plan Update
Thanks for the input!
We hope to take a report to Council on November 7th that summarizes all that we heard during this round of consultation. The feedback received, plus the direction we receive from Council, will be used to revise the vision, goals, policies and future land use map. It will also be used to help us create the first draft of the Official Community Plan. We expect to present the draft Plan, including the revised map, to Council on December 5th.
We also hope to take a report to Council on November 28 about the feedback received related to laneway and carriage houses, and townhouses and rowhouses. The feedback, plus the direction we receive from Council, will be used to refine the guidelines and start to identify next steps in terms of implementation.
Draft Infill Housing Design Guidelines
We have created the first draft of the Infill Housing Design Guidelines for Laneway and Carriage Houses, and for Townhouses and Rowhouses. We are gathering feedback at the OUR FUTURE CITY events and through an online survey (see above).

Infill Housing? See For Yourself
During the OUR CITY process, we’ve been discussing a variety of ground-oriented housing options such as laneway houses and triplexes. Our guided tour provides examples of these housing types in New Westminster and North Vancouver. Enjoy exploring but please be respectful of homeowners’ privacy!
