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.

We are now working on the next phase of the renewal, which is to submit a site wide rezoning application. Building upon the Master Plan, the rezoning process will identify the types of uses that can be included on site, and a number of development criteria including building density, heights, and green space requirements.

This webpage provides a one-stop location where you can learn about the Britannia Renewal, provide your feedback on the rezoning phase, and stay up to date on future engagement opportunities.

Getting started:

Provide your feedback:

  • Use this map to tell us how you connect to the land, nature, and places that make Britannia.
  • More engagement opportunities coming soon - check this page for updates!

Any feedback you provide will help project partners develop site options for the Britannia Community Services Centre site. Specifically, your input will help project partners:

  • develop design guidelines and characteristics of buildings and the site
  • think about key access points to the site from the surrounding neighborhood
  • plan outdoor spaces
  • set general height and shape of future buildings
  • plan for how non-market housing integrates with other uses on site

Feedback received will help project partners develop detailed design options for the site, which will then be presented to the community for addition feedback in the spring.

Stories

Local residents often say, “Britannia is the heart and soul of the community.” 

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, 4 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.
