Britannia renewal project

We are working together with our partners to renew and revitalize Britannia Community Services Centre and the larger Britannia site.

What will be included in the plan

When completed in March 2018, the plan will include: 

  • A community vision that will guide the renewal of Britannia
  • The size and types of recreational and community spaces required to meet future needs at Britannia
  • A master plan outlining where and when what components and features will be developed over the 30-year plan

Our partners

  • Vancouver School Board
  • Vancouver Public Library
  • Vancouver Park Board
  • Britannia Community Services Centre
This community-guided project will result in a plan for the evolution of the site and its facilities for the next 30 years.

Project update

Thanks to the 2500+ people who provided input on Britannia Renewal so far.

We're now analyzing the feedback we received and preparing a summary that will be ready for community comment in September 2017. The summary will include detailed information on the space and programming needs for the renewed Britannia, as well as direction on the design of the facilities.
