Regina’s New OCP Approved by Province

In 2012, SvN was retained by the City of Regina to undertake a comprehensive review and renewal of the Official Community Plan. The Province of Saskatchewan has now approved the new OCP, which is entitled Design Regina. Design Regina was adopted by City Council in December 2013 and it replaces the Regina Development Plan. The new OCP is posted on www.designregina.ca.

Given Regina’s rapid rate of growth and population projections for the next 30 years, this Plan is a priority for the City. Extensive public involvement was core to the development of the Official Community Plan, which was a four-phase project that started in 2009. Community engagement will continue as the Plan is implemented and progress is monitored, assessed, and reported on.

Design Regina contains a comprehensive policy framework that will guide the physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural development of the city. As such, it plays a key role in setting the long-term direction for Regina and is essential to managing future growth, development and change in the community. The new Official Community Plan has formed the basis of the City’s strategic and business planning for the next four years, building the foundation for long-term implementation.
