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

The vision document 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.

It will be used to inform the development of a functional space program (types, sizes, and adjacencies of space needs) and design options in the Master Plan.
