Records are primarily reports created by or on behalf of the Planning Department in relation to the full spectrum of the department's responsibilities. The series also includes reports and studies from other City departments, including Finance, Economic Development, Engineering, and Office of the City Clerk. The series also includes reports, studies, and brochures from outside bodies, including Metro Vancouver and its predecessors, the Vancouver Park Board, other cities, provincial government ministries, community groups, property developers and architects, and academics.
The series also contains a set of information binders, consisting of copies of reports, newspaper clippings, articles, brochures, and other published and unpublished material, collected by the Planning Library staff in the late 1980s to late 1990s. The binders are organized by either subject or neighbourhood/area.
