Citywide Official Community Plan

The Citywide Official Community Plan (CWOCP) is a comprehensive plan that guides the overall future of the City and provides a broad framework for managing future change. 

The CWOCP is at the top of the City’s hierarchy of land use plans. Plans included in the CWOCP are Area Plans and Neighbourhood Plans. If there is a policy conflict between the CWOCP and an Area Plan, the Area Plan policies will take precedence over the Citywide policies.

From time to time, Council will consider amendments to the CWOCP Bylaw which may result in changes to this document. Users of this document will need to assume responsibility for making the necessary inquiries regarding these changes. Further information can be obtained from the City of Coquitlam Planning and Development Department 604-927-3400.
