An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a bylaw that consists of a series of policies that provide a framework for making land use decisions. These policies are based upon the communities vision and objectives and form a guide for future growth and land development. The TNRD Board, staff, the community and developers use OCPs in evaluating applications, reviewing proposed changes in land use, and undertaking projects. All development must conform to the relevant policies of the OCP.
The TNRD has 11 OCPs covering approximately 5% of TNRD unincorporated lands.
