The Town of View Royal
The town of View Royal was incorporated in 1988 and encompasses
1,007 hectares (2,488 acres) of land and 253 hectares (626 acres)
of foreshore and land covered by water.
With a population of just under 6,000, View Royal lies at the doorstep
of Greater Victoria's urban core and adjacent to the growing municipalities
of Esquimalt and Saanich.
View Royal is served by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Waste disposal
is done on a private basis and areas within the township are protected
by a tree-cutting bylaw.
View Royal has been divided into seven distinct Precincts based on such
factors as topography, major transportation corridors, natural environment
and the age of housing stock. They are Craigflower, Harbour, Helmcken,
Hospital, Burnside, Atkins and Wilfert. Each Precinct can also be described
and identified according to its population, the number of dwelling units
by type and ownership, the amount of land available for new development
and the presence of commercial and retail land uses.
