Springbank Area Structure Plan


Latest News

On December 14, 2021, Council gave direction to revisit the draft Springbank Area Structure Plans (ASP) and to undertake further community engagement to help inform revisions to the plans.

Refinements will ensure that the draft plans better align with community opinion and with regional planning policy.

Community Engagement

The County provided multiple engagement opportunities during the spring to receive feedback on improving the draft ASPs. The engagement opportunities included an open house, virtual coffee chat sessions, and an online survey.

The following Engagement Summary provides an overview of what we heard.

Next Steps

The project team is preparing revisions to the draft plans with consideration of the feedback outlined in the Engagement Summary and regional planning policy. Once the revised draft ASP(s) are finalized, we will hold a further engagement prior to a public hearing.
