BC to oversee UBC's land-use planning

May 3, 2010

Last Thursday, the BC government introduced legislation to transfer control of local land-use planning for the University of British Columbia's Vancouver campus from the Metro Vancouver regional government to the province. In consultation with the province's advanced education ministry, the community and rural development minister will be the approving authority for the land use plan for the campus. Late last year, Metro Vancouver warned UBC to take responsibility to govern itself or face a contentious zoning bylaw. UBC News Release | Vancouver Sun
