City Staff & Delta Foundation Partner to Deliver Neighbourhood Small Grants Program

Council approved a request to develop a Neighbourhood Small Grants program with the Delta Foundation, a non-profit community organization.

Delta will provide administrative support during the first year of this partnership. View the staff report


Changes Proposed for Filming in Ladner Village & the North 40

Council agreed to implement the following changes for film productions occurring in Ladner Village and at the North 40 Park Reserve: restrictions on parking for film companies and improved notification and communication of film schedules to affected businesses and the public. The changes were proposed in response to public feedback received from a Delta survey on productions at these two popular film locations. View the staff report.


Application Received for new Commercial buildings on ALR

Council initiated the consultation process (i.e. public notification, public hearing) for a new development application received to construct two single-storey commercial buildings at 9568 Burns Drive; located in the Agricultural Land Reserve. The proposal includes one building with leasable spaces for five tenants, along with a second building with a drive-thru restaurant. To proceed, this application requires an amendment to the Regional Growth Strategy and Delta’s Official Community Plan to change the land use designation, along with rezoning and permits.
