Marpole Community Plan

Marpole is one of the city's oldest communities, and the one visitors see first when entering from the south.

Stretching from Angus Drive to Ontario Street, and from West 57th Avenue to the North Arm of the Fraser River, the region's traffic passes through this neighbourhood, just as it did years ago.

Because demand for new development is growing, City staff have completed a community plan to ensure that future growth in Marpole meets the needs of the entire community.

What's happening

Marine Landing Policy Updates

December 8, 2021 - Council approved the Marine Landing Policy Updates, which reflects updated Council priorities for Marine Landing in response to the Ashley Mar Issues Report and Employment Lands and Economy Review.

This document should be used in preparation of any rezoning enquiries and applications for affordable housing and intensive employment sites in the area as identified in Figure 2. It helps guide buildout of a growing population and employment hub around the Marine Drive Station.


Marpole implementation projects (current and upcoming)

Since City Council approved the plan on April 2, 2014, many city-wide capital planning initiatives, as well as recent developments in the community have contributed to new amenities in Marpole. Many of these amenities were identified in the plan’s Public Benefits Strategy (PBS).

The PBS provides direction for future investments in the community over the long term, including affordable housing, childcare, parks, civic facilities, transportation, and more.
