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!

When opened in 1976, the Britannia pioneered a unique integrated service delivery model, combining educational, recreational and social services on one central campus – creating a village-like sense of home. Britannia continues to provide vital social services to the vibrant and diverse Grandview Woodland community and beyond.

    late night swims

    by justaperson, 8 months ago
    I love the pool. Before the pandemic, it was my favourite place to go late at night for a swim when it was quiet and I could have a lane to myself for a while. Then around the corner for pizza at Sunrise! Having a place to go where I can move and feel good and relax, right in the middle of the city.
