The Seymour Valley Community Association boundaries overlap the boundaries of no less than 3 separate OCP areas making the job of monitoring and ensuring community values and standards are encapsulated in the overlapping areas of each OCP somewhat complex. Hopefully the Seymour Valley Community will eventually have its own OCP but at the present time the best we can do is ensure that our community values are maintained across each of the existing ones.

The Seymour Local Plan includes the properties on the east side of the Seymour River down to Grantham. The Maplewood Plan includes the properties south of Grantham Place. The Lynnmour/Inter-River plan includes the properties north of Grantham on the west side of the Seymour River. It is becoming increasingly clear that there is a long term need for the Seymour Valley Community to have its own consolidated plan which reflects our own unique values and needs. These are lost in the needs and pressures of the larger surrounding community plan areas. There is little or no Seymour Valley community representation on the surrounding plan committees and involvement in these committees requires considerable time committment to issues which do not directly affect us.

The Seymour Valley community contains no commercial development. It is made up primarily of low density rs1 residences and properties. It is surrounded by forest greenspace on 3 sides. 

Developments planned, in progress, and completed for Seymour, Maplewood, and Tsleil-Waututh

No more than an average of 50 units per year may be built for a maximum of 250 units over the 5 year plan phases which are: 2003-2007, 2008-2012, and 2013-2017.

Built or being built in Phase 1 (2003-2007)  
Anne MacDonald Way 23
Taylor Creek 7
Seasons 1 (West) (Tsleil-Waututh) 85
Seasons 2 (South) (Tsleil-Waututh) 85
Windridge Townhouses 56
New Burrard Band single family homes 30
Dollarton Hwy development 6


Future Developments (post 2007)  
Carry over from excess build in phase 1 42
Riverside Terrace (Preliminary app) 36
Mt Seymour Parkway North Side (Preliminary app) 80
DNV - Windridge (Proposed Land Development Program) 50



No further developments are being accepted in SLP Phase 1 and there is a carry over of 42 units into phase 2 based on what is being built as of Feb 21, 2005. It is expected that additional development in the Tsleil-Waututh and Maplewood areas prior to 2008 will further limit the number of units which may be built in Seymour in future phases.

The 3 Plans:

    Seymour Local Plan (Final)
    Seymour Local Plan (Draft)
    Maplewood Plan
    Lynnmour / Inter-River Plan
