Quesnel Fringe Area OCP

The new Quesnel Fringe Area OCP was adopted on September 12, 2014.

In 1985, the Cariboo Regional District Board of Directors adopted the Quesnel Fringe Area Official Community Plan (OCP). It is recommended that OCP’s be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they reflect community goals and aspirations, and reflect current government policies. In 2009, the review of the Quesnel Fringe Area OCP commenced with consultation occurring throughout the Plan development with the local Advisory Planning Commission, and through a public meeting held in January 2011. A component of this revised OCP is updated geotechnical mapping for hazard lands.

The new Plan includes a number of goals, including:

  • Stewardship of natural resources
  • Residential development density
  • Consistency with CRD region wide Shoreland Management Policy and Agriculture-Forestry Policy
  • First Nations engagement
  • establishing Development Permit Areas for aquatic habitat protection
  • Establishing a Development Permit Area for Geotechnical Hazards
  • Commercial/Industrial and multi-family form and character Development Permit areas
  • Quality of Life: policies on First Nations, parks, open spaces, recreation, culture and institutional uses.
  • Consistency with objectives of the recent City of Quesnel OCP
