At its regular meeting on December 16, 2019, a motion was put to Council and approved to ‘pause’ the updating process for our Quadra and North Quadra’s Local Area Plans (LAPs). This was done “to enable resources to be applied to Saanich-wide housing needs and the pros and cons of doing so”. The ‘pause’ is for an indeterminate amount of time but likely about two years at minimum.
QCHCA’s and North Quadra’s LAP updating processes were to begin last Fall, according to a schedule approved by Council in September 2017. Our current LAP was completed in 2001 so is in need of updating. North Quadra’s process was to happen in parallel and the Quadra Corridor was to be treated as a ‘special area’ within the two plans. We hope that this is the way the process will unfold once the ‘pause’ has ended.
