Public Hearings

A Public Hearing is a meeting of City Council that is held to provide an opportunity for members of the public to share their views with Council if they feel that their interest on land use applications such as zoning amendments and official community plan amendments is affected. 

The items for consideration at a Public Hearing are published by way of a notice in the Delta Optimist and the North Delta Reporter.  The items are also published on the City's website in advance of the Public Hearing.


Important Information

On November 30, 2023, the Province of BC amended the Local Government Act to prohibit local governments from holding a public hearing for rezoning applications that are all or predominantly (greater than 50%) residential, where the proposed rezoning is consistent with the local government’s official community plan.
