Notice of Public Hearing - UBC Land Use Plan Amendments

The University of British Columbia’s Public Hearing Committee held a Public Hearing respecting proposed amendments to the Land Use Plan for UBC’s Vancouver Campus. The Public Hearing was held in accordance with Part 10-2010 of the Municipalities Enabling and Validating Act (No. 3), S.B.C. 2001, c. 44 and Ministerial Order No. M229.


Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Time: 6:00pm
Place: Marine Drive Residence Ballroom, 2205 Lower Mall, Vancouver, BC



The proposed Land Use Plan amendments are as follows:

  • Re-designate, and adjust labeling for the “Area Under Review” on maps Schedules A, B, and C of the Land Use Plan, to reflect “Academic” use.

  • Delete Section 4.1.7 “Area Under Review”.

  • Insert the following new wording after Section 5.1.3:

  • Section 5.1.4 Neighbourhood Distribution
    The UBC Board of Governors adopted residential floor space allocations for neighbourhoods on campus to ensure a future population that would support a sustainable community and to transfer the floor space that would have been accommodated on the UBC Farm and other areas to new neighbourhoods (see Land Use Plan Next Steps: Neighbourhood Distribution Report, April 2011 to Board of Governors). Achieving these floor space allocations is essential to UBC’s academic mission, student housing goals, faculty and staff housing goals, endowment value and sustainable community goals. All residential floor space not achieved in these neighbourhoods will be located to different parts of campus in future.”
