Urban Systems was commissioned by Stz’uminus First Nation to prepare a land use plan to guide investment and development decisions in Oyster Bay (IR 12) on Vancouver Island. The land use plan provides an overall development strategy for Oyster Bay as it contains a set of land use designations, supporting policies and design guidelines. The challenge for Urban Systems was to prepare a plan that capitalizes on the natural setting of the site, but will also ensure that new development is sensitively integrated with existing housing. A mixed use village centre located off the Trans Canada Highway was identified and a concept plan prepared to illustrate how this area could be developed. The village centre will create a focal point and destination attraction to the new Oyster Bay community.
