Central Neighbourhood Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The District is undertaking a large planning process for Silverdale to guide future growth and development, and to plan a sustainable and complete community that reflects Silverdale's unique sense of place.

This area, sometimes known as Southwest Mission, is defined in Mission’s Official Community Plan as the Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area (SCPA).

Because of SCPA’s large size, planning will be completed within three separate neighbourhoods: Central Neighbourhood, West Neighbourhood and East Neighbourhood.

Work on the Central Neighbourhood Plan, which covers 733 hectares (1811.28 acres), is currently underway.

The following pillars will be used to guide the Central Neighbourhood Plan:

  • Ecological: Working with nature
  • Social: Living lightly
  • Economic: Support local lifestyles

Read more about each of the pillars in the Planning Principles document.

Supporting Strategies, Plans & Principles

Learn about the strategies, plans and principles supporting Central Neighbourhood planning:

Master Infrastructure Strategy – A technically based, long-term strategy to support servicing of the Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area. This strategy was completed in early 2020 and was important for laying the ground work for planning the Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area.

Official Community Plan A bylaw representing Mission’s vision for the future and framework to support growth and decisions about land use development, resources and the environment.

LAN 64(c) Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area Neighbourhood Planning Terms of Reference A Council policy to guide neighbourhood planning within the Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area.

Central Neighbourhood Plan Guiding Principles – Planning for the Central Neighbourhood Plan will be focused on three pillars, ecological, social and economic, and lay the framework for what the Central Neighbourhood Plan will look and feel like.

Opportunities to Get Involved

Throughout the planning process, there will be opportunities for the community to get involved and give feedback to help shape the design options for Central Neighbourhood Plan.

Subscribe to this project page to receive updates to your email, and watch for consultation opportunity announcements on the District’s website, social media channels, and in the Mission City Record.

Phase 2 Engagement Opportunities

In Phase 2, we will begin exploring preliminary design options. In this phase, the public will be invited to:

  • Attend a virtual public open house
  • Give feedback in a survey

CNP Landowner One-on-one Virtual Meetings

Following the initial Silverdale Central Neighbourhood Plan (CNP) Landowner Virtual Meetings held on March 10th + 12th, we want to ensure that CNP landowners have an opportunity to discuss their lands in regards to the Neighbourhood Plan process and Preliminary Design Options. Such meetings would provide an opportunity to:

  • Respond to questions about the CNP process;
  • Review the biophysical findings and opportunities + constraints of your property; and,
  • Discuss your future expectations for your property and the larger neighbourhood.

As we develop the CNP Preliminary Design Options required for Phase 2 of the CNP process, direct virtual meetings with EKISTICS, the lead Neighbourhood Plan Consultant, are available between March 29th + April 9th, 2021 using the Zoom meeting app. Please contact Barry Warren at warren@ekistics.ca with your name and your property address within the CNP to schedule a zoom meeting.
