Housing concept presented

A proposed development would put roughly 30 homes onto a 3.2-hectare property in Trout Creek beside Powell Beach Park.

The proposal was presented at municipal council on Monday evening, where an amendment to the Official Community plan was given first reading.

The property, on Dale Avenue, is zoned A1-Agricultural Small Acreage, but it is not within the Agricultural Land Reserve.

It is within the Urban Growth Area in Summerland’s existing Official Community Plan. The designation does not change under the new Urban Growth Plan which has not yet been adopted.

The land for the development requires a bylaw amendment to rezone the property from A1-Agricultural  Small Acreage to RSD1, RSD2 and RSD3 residential.

The difference in the three residential classes is in the lot sizes.

The bylaw to amend the Official Community Plan and zoning for the development received first reading on Monday evening.

A public hearing on the development will be held at the next municipal council meeting on Monday, Sept. 8.
