Northern Rockies Regional Municipality



Like any thriving community, Fort Nelson is challenged to keep up with the demand for housing of all kinds and in all categories. The majority of lands for development are in the hands of BC's Integrated Land Management Bureau (ILMB); the NRRM and ILMB work collaboratively to ensure new land is opened up as quickly as possible - where and when it is needed.  To see plans for future growth, see Fort Nelson's Official Community Plan.

Currently NRRM staff are working to preempt the potential effects of the Horn River Basin Unconventional Gas Play.  In 2010, a new Residential Housing Strategy was adopted.  An older Housing Profile from 2006 is also available for context. 

Work is underway to better understand Fort Nelson's current inventory, and growth potential.  Currently, there are lots available in Angus II subdivision off of Simpson Trail, and in a new RS-2 subdivision, called Pine Crescent, which is zoned for single family, duplex, modular and mobile homes on the community's east boundary. As well as NRRM-owned lots near the middle of town are available for the right proposal.    

For those looking for rural living options, there is existing property available for everything from small acreage to hobby-farm size, and one small rural residential strata/subdivision nearing completion (directly adjacent to town boundaries). Through the Official Community Plan, plans are underway to release additional rural properties.

For more information on available land, please contact the Community Development and Planning Department.
