Regional Plan Draft 1

On March 6, 2013 the Community Design Advisory Committee was presented with a first draft of the revised Regional Plan. The draft was developed as part of the Plan's first five-year review.

A few notes on how to read Draft 1:

  • Draft 1 is a working draft. It will likely undergo more changes before public consultation begins.
  • The Plan is presented in a review mode version to clearly show the changes - additions, deletions, etc.
  • The Plan is presented in individual chapters, 1 through 10.
  • A Primer provides an overview and explanation of all the changes to the document. Within the primer, a detailed reference table explains each change by plan section and policy number.
  • A colour scheme is used to indicate change:
    • Black text indicates original text of the Plan
    • Black strikethrough indicates text has been deleted
    • Green text indicates original text has moved within the document
    • Green strikethrough indicates the moved text has been deleted
    • Red text indicates new text
