Land Use Plan
PRPA Land Use Plan Update
The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is updating its Land Use Plan. The existing Land Use Plan was implemented in 2011, and set out a development plan for the subsequent 10 years.
A land use plan is a strategic document that helps guide PRPA in carrying out its mandate to grow the Port in support of Canada’s trade with the world, while ensuring we also maintain our commitment to sustainable environmental stewardship, operational safety, and healthy local communities.
The plan is a high-level vision of what the Port of Prince Rupert will look like in the future, and refers to the general type of uses and activities it plans to incorporate on different properties within its jurisdiction. It does not predetermine how those uses will specifically be developed, or what specific terminals, operations or cargoes will be, or replace project-level reviews of proposed developments.
This is the second phase of public engagement within this update process, and PRPA encourages the community to participate and provide feedback on this draft before it is finalized later this summer. This is an opportunity to ensure your voice is considered as we balance economic, environment and social objectives to create a sustainable future for the port within our communities.
PRPA has opened a 60-day public comment period from June 18 to August 17, 2020.
Submissions, comments, and questions should be sent to PRPA via email at firstname.lastname@example.org before the August 17 deadline. We will acknowledge receipt of your feedback.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not have the opportunity to conduct a traditional open house as part of our engagement process. As an alternative, we have incorporated an enhanced online presentation of the Land Use Plan draft, including a summary of key changes in the videos and summary documents on this page, as well as a section to incorporate ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ that we will update on an ongoing basis.
