Official Community Plan

Project state

This project has now concluded. We thank the community for your input as the OCP was updated.


Central Saanich has adopted its new Official Community Plan (OCP). The OCP was developed over three years and with considerable community input.

The municipality extends our deep appreciation to all of Central Saanich’s community members who shared their ideas and feedback throughout the OCP update process, including members and staff at the W̱SÁNEĆ Leadership Council and our First Nations community members, as well as the members of the OCP Advisory Committee.

The OCP provides a strong foundation for District decision-making, we look forward to working with the wider community on implementation priorities as they evolve.

The OCP is one of Central Saanich’s most important documents. It presents the long-term vision for the community, setting out objectives and policies that guide decisions on planning, land use, and the provision of municipal services. In doing so, it helps us determine how and where we live, work, play and move.
