Let’s head back in time once again, this time to 1969 to see aerial view of Ladner Village.

Fast forward to late 2020 and city council approved a $124,000 contract for a consultant to help with engagement and planning to update the OCP for the village, last updated a decade ago but with not much redevelopment having occurred.

The OCP review was one of the key actions recommended by the Ladner Village Renewal Advisory Committee.

Issues to be explored include building design and building heights as well as other aspects of the committee’s recommendations.

Council also approved a separate contract of almost $180,000 for a consultant team to help shape the Ladner Waterfront Public Lands Development Strategy and Chisholm Street Reconfiguration Project, a site redevelopment strategy and new concept for the Delta-owned lands along the waterfront at Chisholm Street.

Community consultation is about the get underway on the initiatives.
