Regular readers will know that I am no fan of the City of Vancouver’s Planning Department and their so-called Community Plans in particular. There are literally hundreds of pages of complaints in this blog and I wrote a book about the whole experience. But Grandview was/is not alone in suffering under this and the last regime.
The West End’s Community Plan was approved more than a year before ours and so they have been in the implementation phase for almost a decade. There is a long article in the West End Journal blog detailing the shortcomings of their Plan’s implementation. It is well worth the read.
