Amendments

One of the goals of the OCP is to ensure that it is a living plan that “remains current and relevant over its life.” The OCP directs 5-year reviews to be undertaken to ensure the Plan meets this goal. In between 5-year reviews the Plan will be amended from time to time to stay current and respond to changing circumstances.

Southeast Regina Neighbourhood Plan

The City is currently undertaking a planning review for the southeast part of Regina. The proposed Southeast Regina Neighbourhood Plan will provide an overarching policy framework guiding future land-use, development and infrastructure servicing for the southeast growth area.

Additional information about the proposed plan going to Committee and Council is available on Regina.ca/southeast.

Map Changes to Part A – Citywide Plan

We want to hear from you!

Through the review of the Southeast Regina Neighbourhood Plan (SENP), a number of OCP map amendments have been identified to make sure the future land use and development of the Southeast Regina Neighbourhood Plan is consistent with the City’s overall growth plan in Design Regina. Changes are also being made to reflect the final route of the Province’s highway bypass around the city (Maps 1, 2, 3 and 5). Lastly, some minor map changes are proposed such as updating city boundaries.

The OCP provides direction to “Amend Map 1 – Growth Plan and related policies if necessary to correspond with the final alignment of the provincial highway bypass to comprehensively plan development in the southeast.” Comprehensive planning of the southeast has been done through the review process for the SENP. As a result, the OCP Growth Plan would be changed to identify the lands within the bypass as new neighbourhoods and the lands outside of the bypass as future employment lands. Further, the southeast lands within the bypass will be added to Phase 3 on the phasing map. In December 2015, City Council directed that the lands in the southeast be included in the phasing plan when the SENP is brought forward for approval.

Proposed changes to the maps are highlighted in the table below:

Map 1 – Growth Plan
  • Added “New Neighbourhood (300k) 2016 Amendment” to the map, legend and a note regarding the new area within the southeast highway bypass.
