Housing Action Plan

Last year, the City began developing a Housing Action Plan to help address Delta’s current and future housing needs.

For Phase 1 of this project, we conducted a Housing Needs Assessment with residents and stakeholders to better understand Delta’s current housing situation and decide what are Delta’s priority needs for housing. The key areas we identified are:







Draft Housing Strategies

The City is now in Phase 2 and choosing strategies to meet those needs. We are looking for community input on some possible strategies and actions the City is considering implementing over the next five years.

1. Promote priority housing through 'sliding scale’ incentives
2. Explore ways to increase land availability for priority housing
3. Create opportunities for gentle density
4. Introduce renter protection policies
5. Increase the number of accessible units in Delta
6. Pilot pre-zoning in select areas near town centres
7. Introduce inclusionary zoning policies

Watch this short video for a short description of the housing strategies the City is considering.


We want your input

Please complete out our guided feedback questionnaire by clicking on the ‘Feedback Form' button below. The questionnaire is open until December 7, 2020.

Next steps

Once virtual consultation closes, the public input received will be used to help develop the City’s draft Housing Action Plan. The draft Plan is expected to be presented to Delta Council in Spring 2021 and will be followed by a final round of virtual public consultation.
