Current Feedback Opportunities

Future use of Oak Bay Lodge

The Capital Regional Hospital District (CRHD) is seeking community input on the future use of the Oak Bay Lodge property. The CRHD is responsible for a comprehensive planning and consultation process for the future use of the property, and the first round of consultation is now open for public participation.

The CRHD is planning two online open houses on January 21 and January 26, 2021 to outline elements of the project and seek input from the public on regional healthcare-related priorities for the property. This consultation period will run until February 4, 2021.

Visit Oak Bay Lodge Redevelopment to read the discussion guide, register for an online open house and submit your feedback online.

Solid Waste Management Plan

The CRD is developing a new solid waste management plan to reduce how much material is sent to Hartland Landfill and guide how the region's waste is managed in a safe, secure and sustainable way now and in the future.

Public engagement is a key part of developing the region's solid waste management plan and the CRD is welcoming feedback from residents on the draft plan until February 15.

Capital region residents are invited to review the draft plan and FAQs, learn what the CRD has heard so far and provide feedback on this draft.
