Planning the Upper Lands: Creating a sustainable urban community in Cypress Village and protecting lands in Eagleridge


Building on the vision already outlined in the 2018 Official Community Plan, the District is undertaking a planning and community engagement process to create detailed policy for a new compact, sustainable urban community in Cypress Village and for protecting a large portion of the Eagleridge lands in perpetuity for conservation and recreation.

This will be a comprehensive process that is anticipated to run until mid-2021. It will involve detailed analysis, careful consideration, and a substantial level of community engagement.

Additional Materials and Survey #1 (November 2020)

The planning team has drafted proposed Planning Principles for Cypress Village and Eagleridge and prepared some additional background materials about the lands and the proposed number of housing units in Cypress Village. These new documents are provided in the links below:

The first community survey is also now posted below. The planning team is seeking your input about proposed principles to guide detailed planning for Eagleridge and Cypress Village.

We also want to know your opinion about the trade-off between the scale of development in Cypress Village and the share of Eagleridge that is protected at this time.

We hope you will take the survey to have your say in helping to shape the plan for Eagleridge and Cypress Village.

The survey (below) will be open until Monday, December 14, 2020.



Initial Information (July 2020)

As an introduction, initial background information about the lands, planning context, goals, process, team, and how to stay involved are provided in the links below.

  • Thank you for your interest in Planning the Upper Lands. This is the first community survey to obtain input to help the District of West Vancouver plan the future of Eagleridge and Cypress Village in the Upper Lands. 

    West Vancouver’s Official Community Plan already contains policies about protecting the Eagleridge lands for conservation and recreation and creating compact, sustainable, urban neighbourhoods in Cypress Village. The District is now creating detailed policy for how to implement this vision.  

    The planning team is seeking your input about proposed principles to guide detailed planning for these areas. We also want to know your opinion about the trade-off between the scale of development in Cypress Village and the share of Eagleridge that is protected at this time. 

    You may find it helpful to read the proposed planning principles and background materials posted on the project webpages before you take the survey, but you can complete the survey without doing so.  

    The survey will likely take about 10 minutes to complete.

    The survey will be open until Monday, December 14, 2020.
