Rosemary Heights NCPs

Rosemary Heights is the name of the neighbourhoods south of the Nicomekl River, east of Highway 99 and north of Titman Creek. In addition to the river, the area is home to a number of important fish bearing creeks and rare wetland habitat. The area is served by Rosemary Heights and Morgan Elementary Schools. 

The area is separated into three plan areas, each of which was planned through separate Neighbourhodo Concept Plan (NCP) processes. The development of these neighbourhood plan areas was guided through the 1994 Rosemary Heights Local Area Plan, which provided an overall guide for land use in the area.    

These three Rosemary Heights land use plans, now largely built out, provide direction on the type and density of development, urban design, parks and community amenities and engineering infrastructure.

Plan Area

This Rosemary Heights plan areas designate land uses for the broader Rosemary Heights community, generally located south of the Nicomekl River and east of Highway 99. The plan areas are bordered by the Morgan Heights golf course in the east and the north Grandview Heights NCP in the south.  

Background Information

In 1992 City Council identified Rosemary Heights as one of several areas that would be suitable for development consideration. A Local Area Plan was subsequently approved in 1994 to serve as an overall guide for land use, servicing and development in the area. The Plan also identified the Neighbourhood Concept Planning (NCP) approach to further plan the north and south portions of the plan area.

In November 1996, Council approved the Rosemary Heights Central NCP, the first phase of of the broader community. Then, in July 1997, Council approved the Rosemary Heights West  NCP to complete the northern extent of the area to the edge of Highway 99. Finally, in February 2000, Council approved the Rosemary Heights Business Park NCP, completing land use planning for the broader Rosemary Heights community.

On June 12, 2017, in response to community concerns associated with several development applications in the Rosemary Heights Central NCP, Council approved Corporate Report R130 which authorized staff to undertake a land use review of the areas designated as “Suburban.” Along with the suburban pocket review, staff was also asked to evaluate traffic impacts and road network implications associated with all currently proposed land use amendments in the RHC NCP.

On March 7, 2018, Council endorsed Corporate Report R048 which authorized an amendement to portions of the suburban pocket within the Rosemary Heights Central NCP.
