HEREAS it has been realized that large municipal expenditures Preamble. have become necessary owing to the fortuitous development of urban centres, and that it is advisable to make provision whereby the natural growth of cities and towns may be planned in a systematic and orderly way, so that adequate means of communication for an increasing population may be provided and congestion avoided, and that economies may be effected in the industrial and business activities of communities, and so that the serviceableness of business property and the amenity of residential districts may be preserved and adequate areas may be provided for protecting the health of and providing recreation for the public:
Therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, enacts as follows:

(f.) To consider any matters dealing with the physical development of the municipality which it may deem expedient.
4. Upon completion of any plan or set of plans prepared for the purpose of the official town plan, accompanied with such explanatory memoranda and specifications or books of reference as may serve to elucidate and clearly define the scope and objects of this plan or set of plans, which accompanying documents shall be read with and form a part of the plan or set of plans, the Council shall take same into consideration, and when found satisfactory shall approve the plan by resolution.
5. Upon such approval the original and duplicate plans shall be impressed with the seal of the municipality and dated and signed by the Municipal Clerk, and the same shall then constitute and be known as the official town plan. The procedure set out in this and
