Central Saanich appoints new planner

The District of Central Saanich announced Dec. 19 the appointment of a new Director of Planning and Building Services.

The municipality chose to hire from within, naming Bruce Greig, past District Planner, as the new Director of Planning and Building Services.

“We did a full search for a new candidate and we were fortunate to have a tremendous amount of interest in the position, but ultimately we felt Bruce came out strong and head and shoulders above the competition,” said Mayor Alastair Bryson.

“The breadth and depth of knowledge he has on the district’s issues are at his fingertips and I think he’s already earned significant respect in the community since he has been here.”

Greig joined the District of Central Saanich in December 2005 as Assistant Planner and was promoted to District Planner in 2011. Prior to joining local government Greig served in the private sector, focusing on land development.

Greig is a Registered Professional Planner with the Planning Institute of B.C., a Registered Landscape Architect with the B.C. Society of Landscape Architects and holds a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of B.C.

“I am thrilled to see Bruce in his new role as Director and in joining our senior management team here at the District,” said Chief Administrative Officer Patrick Robins.

“He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from both the public and private sectors (and) I’m excited about the opportunities before us in our community. I’m pleased Bruce will be part of that.”

Greig replaces long-time municipal staffer Hope Burns, who as of  Oct. 15 was no longer employed by the district. Greig officially took on the position last Thursday, Dec. 20.
