An Official Community Plan (OCP) guides land use and development. All municipal policies, plans and regulations must be in alignment with the OCP. An OCP review is an opportunity for the District to ensure that the goals and objectives remain relevant.


Click the Phase 2 icons below to provide input on the emerging vision and growth scenarios:


Since an Official Community Plan is a long-term guiding document, it is important that the community is involved in developing the plan.

In the fall,  these themes emerged from citizen visioning (phase one). This visioning will be combined with scientific data on current growth trends in our next phase of community consultation.

Phase two of the community conversation looked to confirm and apply the vision identified in the fall. Visual representation describing form and character, and mapping of three scenarios for the growth of Sooke over the next ten years will be shared with the community. The District received Sooke resident input, rating and comments, on the imagery and growth scenarios to answer:

  • Did we accurately capture the community’s vision and goals?
  • Where should our growth take place? Maps show three potential growth scenarios based on visioning input received in the fall and scientific data on community growth trends. 
  • Where growth will be taking place, what should it look like? Rate and comment on imagery showing where growth occurs, what it could look like

Please check back for the “What we heard” report which will be available at the end of April.
