About the Advisory Planning Commission (APC)
In each of the four electoral areas in the Strathcona Regional District for which planning and land use management is conducted, the electoral area director may opt to establish an advisory planning commission (APC) and then appoint members of the public to that APC to provide input land use management requests and provide insights, information and relevant information to the elected area director.
The SRD currently has APCs in Electoral Area ‘B’ (Cortes Island) and Electoral Area ‘D’ (Oyster Bay – Buttle Lake). Each APC follows the Advisory Planning Commission Bylaw.
An advisory planning commission is established to provide input and advice about planning and land use management applications that occur within its electoral area.
