Lansdowne Shopping Centre RedevelopmentProposed Master Land Use Plan for Lansdowne Centre
The property owner of Lansdowne Centre shopping mall has approached the City regarding the redevelopment of the site. Based on the size and the prominence of the property, and the necessity of redeveloping in phases, City staff advised the owner to draft a Proposed Master Land Use Plan to guide future redevelopment of the site. The applicant's Proposed Master Land Use Plan includes proposed amendments to the City's Official Community Plan (OCP) and City Centre Area Plan (CCAP) to refine the on-site organization of building density and height, and land uses. No additional density is proposed.
The staff report, which outlines the proposed policy refinements and seeks Council authorization to undertake community consultation is available here:
Lansdowne Shopping Centre - Request to Endorse Public Consultation
In December 2017, City Council authorized staff to manage an applicant undertaken community consultation process regarding the Proposed Master Land Use Plan for the Lansdowne Centre shopping centre site. As part of the consultation process, the applicant hosted two drop-in style public information meetings at the Lansdowne Shopping Centre shopping mall in February 2018. Residents and interested parties were invited to attend the public information meetings to review display boards with information about the Proposed Master Land Use Plan for the property, to complete a feedback form that was available on LetsTalkRichmond.ca, and to talk with the applicant's representatives and City staff about the proposal.
Staff will bring forward a report for Council's consideration that includes a summary and analysis of the feedback received to date, as well as an updated proposed Master Land Use Plan. Although the community consultation plan outlined in the staff report has concluded, public comments are accepted throughout the development application review process.
