Westerra Mixed Community Development

Neighbourhood & Concept Plan

B&A Planning Group developed a Neighbourhood Plan and subsequently a Phase One Concept Plan for the Westerra development, a mixed-use community comprised of approximately 490 acres (198 hectares) of land in Regina, Saskatchewan. 

The community is designed as a place where residents can live, work and play through the integration of commercial, business and residential uses woven together with open spaces. The site also plays a role as a key community transportation hub given its proximity to the airport, railway, and major transportation corridors.

As part of the process, B&A developed and carried out comprehensive communications and engagement to ensure both plans aligned with and addressed stakeholder aspirations and concerns. One tactic including a series of Design Charrettes and workshops that allowed the team to get the most diverse and comprehensive input as possible. The Charrette is a design process where a multidisciplinary team (including residents, business owners, the municipality and design professionals such as architects, engineers, planners and landscape architects) creates a visual plan for an area.

The Neighbourhood Plan & the Phase One Concept Plan  were approved by the City of Regina in 2015.
