Britannia Renewal

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

The Britannia Renewal Master Plan was unanimously approved by Council in July 2018 with support from the site partners. We are currently undertaking comprehensive site rezoning.

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.

Britannia Renewal Vision

The Britannia Renewal Vision is the result of a comprehensive engagement with community members, service providers, and staff. It is a refining of many voices and a record of the needs, dreams, and aspirations of the community for Britannia's renewal.

The vision has formed the development of a functional space program (types, qualities, and adjacencies of space needs) and design options in the Master Plan.
