City Seeking Public Input this Fall to Create Urban Villages in Northeast Burnaby

The City of Burnaby is moving forward with plans to re-envision the future of two northeast Burnaby neighbourhoods, and will soon be seeking residents’ input to shape how these areas will redevelop over the next 50 years.

This fall, the City intends to engage residents in the development of new Community Plans for the Bainbridge and Lochdale neighbourhoods. These plans will guide the transformation of these neighbourhoods into thriving Urban Villages, where people can easily set out on foot to get to work, to shop and enjoy themselves without having to drive. They will also accommodate a wide range of housing types and forms, and will be built around established transit corridors. City Council endorsed preliminary goals and a land use framework as a basis for further consultation for both the Bainbridge and Lochdale Urban Village Community Plans at their July 27 meeting.

The Bainbridge neighbourhood is centrally located between Brentwood and Lougheed Town Centre, adjacent to the Sperling SkyTrain Station and Burnaby Lake Regional Park. The Lochdale neighbourhood is primarily located along Hastings Street between Hammarskjold Drive and Duthie Avenue. 

Public input will help guide development of the preliminary community vision, goals, plan area boundary and further refinement of a land use framework for both neighbourhoods.

The development of the Bainbridge and Lochdale Urban Village Community Plans supports significant actions in This is Climate Action, a framework developed to guide how the City will put into action its commitment to be “carbon neutral” (no longer contributing to the carbon emissions that accelerate climate change) by 2050. Preliminary goals for the Community Plans will support housing sustainability and resilience, strengthening links between local jobs, housing and transit, and advancing sustainable community design.
