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

In July 2018, Vancouver City Council approved the Britannia Renewal Master Plan. Now, the City and Project Partners (the Britannia Community Services Society, Vancouver School Board, Vancouver Public Library and the Vancouver Board of Park and Recreation) are working with the community to develop and submit a rezoning application for Britannia.

This rezoning process will build on the Master Plan to determine aspects of the future Britannia site, including uses, building heights, density, and green space requirements. Throughout the rezoning process, Project Partners will work collaboratively with the community to determine a preferred site option.

Starting in January 2021, there will be many opportunities for you to share your feedback on the future of the Britannia. We will ensure that there are lots of COVID-safe ways to participate. Check back here for details.


The vision for Britannia Renewal is to create a welcoming and inclusive community place for reconciliation, social connection and development, learning, cultural exploration and expression, play, and recreation - enhancing the life and well-being of all.

Key project values were created with the community during the Master Plan. These values will continue to guide the Britannia Renewal through the rezoning process:

• Take action on reconciliation

• Honour history and culture

• Importance of sharing and caring

• Be accessible, welcoming, and safe for all

• Support well being and growth of the individual and community

• Optimize resilience and sustainability

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.
