Crescent Beach Land Use Plan

Crescent Beach is the name of the small neighbourhood at the mouth of the Nicomekl. It is characterized by an abundance of accessible oceanfront, including its namesake beach and Blackie Spit Park. Crescent Beach offers views of Boundary Bay and the North Shore Mountains. The neighbourhood is mostly residential, with some neighbourhood commercial along Beecher Street.

The Crescent Beach Land Use Plan provides direction the type and density of development. The Plan is focused on preserving and enhancing the semi-rural seaside village character of Crescent Beach.

Plan Area

The plan area encompasses approximately 91 hectares (225 acres) of lands traditionally associated with the beach and the seaside residential area. Located below the Crescent Heights bluff to the south-east, it is bounded by waters to the north, west and north-east.

Background Information

In April 1999, following a public consultation process, Council endorsed Corporate Report C421 which approved the Crescent Beach Land Use Plan.

In the Spring of 2016, the City initiated a planning process to review land use, transportation and other issues in Crescent Beach. No changes to land uses were expected as a result of the review.
