A Public Hearing is scheduled for Monday, August 27, 2018 to provide an opportunity for public feedback regarding the Colwood Official Community Plan 2018 (Bylaw No. 1700).

Nine new background maps have been added to the plan. Colwood Council has taken this extra step to ensure the plan is clear, complete, and meets absolutely all legislated requirements. To incorporate these revisions, Council rescinded second reading of the previous draft then gave the new document first and second reading, which triggered an additional public hearing. All input from the previous public hearing and public engagement continues to be part of the record for Council consideration.

What is a Public Hearing?

A Public Hearing is a vital part of Council’s review when applications are made to change the City’s Official Community Plan or Land Use Bylaw. It provides the public with a way to present their views to Council on items contained in the public hearing agenda. It is not a question and answer period. The Public Hearing is Council’s opportunity to listen to members of the public to hear their views or receive their written submissions on items contained in the public hearing agenda. Council is not able to discuss and debate the topic at the public hearing.
