Together with the community, we are working on the rezoning phase of the Britannia Renewal.

In 2018, project partners (the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Park Board, Vancouver School Board, Vancouver Public Library and Britannia Community Services Society) adopted a Master Plan that sets out the vision for the renewal of the Britannia Community Services Centre.


What's happening?

We are now working on the rezoning phase of the Britannia Renewal. Rezoning is the process of changing how a property can be used or developed. Before we submit a formal rezoning application for the renewed Britannia, we will explore a series of development site options to discuss priorities for dedicated and shared spaces, trade-offs, and to find creative solutions to meet the diverse needs of the community.

Some considerations that will inform site options include:

  • Site organization and interconnections between spaces
  • Scale of buildings
  • Preserving and increasing green space
  • Preserving view corridors
  • Opportunities for non-market housing including number of units and height


Get involved:

As we discuss options for how to bring to life the vision for the Britannia Renewal, we will continue to work with community. In 2022 we will host small group workshops, visioning sessions and an online survey to get your input on the site options. Check back here to keep up to date with upcoming engagement opportunities!

Britannia's important places and spaces

2 months

Use this map to tell us how you connect to the land, nature and places that make Britannia the heart and soul of the community:

  • What places make you feel comfortable? What places make you feel uncomfortable? Why?
  • What places do you like to sit at and enjoy your surroundings? What colours, sounds and smells make this place important?
  • Are there any spaces that are not currently available that you would like to see added through the rezoning?

The information you provide will help the design team develop site options for the future rezoning application for the Britannia site, including:

  • develop guidelines for building features and qualities
  • think about key access points
  • decide on the placement of buildings and what goes next to buildings
  • plan outdoor spaces
  • set buildings heights and footprints
CLOSED: Thank you for sharing your favorite Britannia spaces and places with us. For an overview of what we've heard to date, see the Engagement Summary Report.
