The City's Official Community Plan provides the policy foundation for further planning initiatives that will be required as Nelson grows and changes. The purpose of the OCP is to guide community activities in a coordinated, sustainable manner. Five Sustainability Principles guide our future planning and decision making: Cultural Strength, Healthy Neighbourhoods, Robust Ecosystems, Prosperity and Resiliency.
Nelson City Council adopted the Official Community Plan on May 13, 2013.
