Official Community Plan

Official Community Plan Bylaw No.7060-2014

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 Official Community Plan outlines the long term vision for growth and development in Maple Ridge. The Official Community Plan is a living document and is updated as our City grows.  

The Official Community Plan (OCP) was updated with minor housekeeping amendments and adopted through OCP Adoption Bylaw No. 7060-2014 (PDF) on February 11, 2014.

Regional Context Statement

Maple Ridge adopted the Regional Context Statement (PDF) in the Official Community Plan (OCP) to show the alignment between the OCP and the current Regional Growth Strategy (RGS); adopted by Metro Vancouver in July 2011. The Local Government Act, Section 866 requires that a municipality must include a Regional Context Statement in the OCP where a regional plan is in effect. A Regional Context Statement must specifically identify the relationship between the Regional Growth Strategy and the OCP, and if applicable, identify how the OCP will be made consistent with the RGS over time.
