Horseshoe Bay Local Area Plan


Background

Horseshoe Bay, located at the western tip of West Vancouver, is a unique seaside neighbourhood sloping down to a commercial village situated along the waterfront. Its marine commercial character, casual ambiance, visitor attractions, and position as “Mile Zero” of the Sea-to-Sky Highway and “gateway” to Howe Sound provide the setting for a waterfront neighbourhood, village and destination frequented year-round by visitors and tourists.

At its meeting on March 11, 2019, Council directed staff to commence the Horseshoe Bay Local Area Plan (LAP) process to create a new LAP for the area in accordance with an approved Terms of Reference. Please see the Document Library located on the right for a copy of the Council Report and Terms of Reference.

Part of the Official Community Plan

The Horseshoe Bay LAP preparation process will involve working with local stakeholders and the community on issues and opportunities in a contextually-sensitive manner.

As the LAP will become part of the Official Community Plan (OCP), the preparation of the LAP will also consider neighbourhood-level responses to the District-wide objectives and policies identified in the OCP.

Planning Process

The four anticipated phases of the Horseshoe Bay local area planning process are illustrated in the diagram below:
