In Delta, the foundation for environmental planning is Delta's Official Community Plan (OCP). The OCP outlines the long term vision of the community and provides guidance for decision-making. It also contains policies regarding land use, development, services, amenities and infrastructure.
The Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) guides the community's priorities and efforts with respect to its energy consumption and identifies how to support activities that reduce our daily impacts at home, at work, and in between.
In addition to the OCP and CEEP, regional plans and strategies such as Metro Vancouver's Regional Growth Strategy and Ecological Health Action Plan, provide guidance regarding environmental objectives in Delta.
