Local Area Planning
The City of Victoria is developing new neighbourhood plans for both Fairfield and Gonzales.
Project updates are posted on the City’s website here.
Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan
In April 2016, Gonzales neighbours came together to launch the neighbourhood planning process. The City has drafted a plan to help guide growth and future development in Gonzales over the next 25 years.
Read the Draft Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan here. The draft plan went to Committee of the Whole on July 13, 2017. Council referred the draft Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan and draft Design Guidelines to the Advisory Design Panel and Heritage Advisory Panel for comment. Staff will create specific guidelines or exemptions for the proposed Heritage Conservation Areas that address feedback from homeowners, the community and the Heritage Advisory Panel. Staff will also seek further public comment on the next iteration of the draft plan. View the report.
Fairfield Neighbourhood Plan
The Fairfield Neighbourhood Plan is currently under development.There is a great deal of information on the City website.
City staff will be presenting a report on the Fairfield Neighbourhood Plan to Council’s Committee of the Whole on Thursday, September 14, 2017. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. and is live webcast. The recorded webcast is also posted the following day. Watch the meeting here.
The report proposes early plan directions that will be used to prepare the draft neighbourhood plan. It also seeks further direction from Council on the proposed growth options and heritage conservation areas for Fairfield.
