Highlights of the regional board meeting – July 29, 2013

July 31, 2013 - 10:33 AM

Proposed Secondary Suite Designation

The Regional Board has given second and third reading to a proposed amendment to the Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw in order to allow development of a secondary suite.  The applicant intends to develop a legal secondary suite attached to an existing single family residence on a .4-hectare property on Greystokes Road in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.  Final reading and adoption of the amending bylaw will be scheduled once approval is received from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Proposed Light Industrial Land Use

The Regional Board has given first reading to proposed amendments to the Ellison Official Community Plan and Zoning bylaw.  The applicant operates a heavy equipment operator training school on a 9.4-hectare property located off Beaver Lake Road within the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.  The property had previously been the site of a composting operation and requires the land use designation changes in order to reflect past and the current light industrial use.  A Public Hearing will be scheduled after the applicant provides a letter indicating it will register a covenant on the property restricting use to a ‘Commercial School’.

Brent-Trepanier Land Use Applications

The Regional Board did not give first reading to proposed land use designation changes for a property adjacent to Paradise Valley Drive and Trepanier Road in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area.  The applicant requested discharge of a Land Use Contract; and amendments to the Brent Road – Trepanier Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw in order to allow a proposed three lot Country Residential subdivision from the existing 3.32-hectare property.  The application was not supported by the Board for several reasons:  it is contrary to growth management in the area; the proposed zoning is not supported by the Official Community Plan and it doesn’t meet the community water system servicing requirement of the Subdivision and Servicing Bylaw.  In addition, there is no local fire protection or community water system available in this part of the electoral area.
June Building Statistics Report

During June, the Regional District approved 16 building permits for construction projects valued at $364,500 in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas.  That compares with 19 permits issued during June 2012 for projects worth a total of $1,201,000. So far this year 61 building permits have been approved for projects worth an estimated $3.3-million.  During the first half of 2012, 57 building permits were approved for projects valued at just over $4.5-million.
