Britannia Oceanfront Developments Corporation Zoning Amendment Application
Pursuant to Section 464 of the Local Government Act this is to provide notice of intent of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District to amend Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Zoning Bylaw No. 1350-2016 in a manner consistent with the Electoral Area D Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1135-2013.
Public Notice is hereby given in accordance with Section 467 of the Local Government Act that a Public Hearing will be waived regarding the following bylaw:
Electoral Area D Zoning Bylaw No. 1350-2016 Amendment Bylaw No. 1650-2019
197 Main Street, Britannia Beach
PID 005-484-073, LOT 1 DISTRICT LOTS 891 AND 892 PLAN 19960, AND, Macdonald Development Corporation property in trust for Britannia Oceanfront Developments Corporation: PID 015-913-961, DL891, GROUP 1 NEW WESTMINSTER DISTRICT, EXCEPT: FIRSTLY; PART IN REFERENCE PLAN 4390, SECONDLY; PORTIONS IN PLANS 19960, BCP7077, BCP7078, BCP10055, BCP20004, BCP20023, BCP20031 AND BCP25662, THIRDLY; PART HIGHWAY PLAN 145, FOURTHLY; PART DEDICATED ROAD ON PLAN BCP19403
Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Electoral Area D Zoning Bylaw No. 1350-2016, Amendment Bylaw No. 1556-2018 was adopted on July 24, 2019 and resulted in the creation of the CD2 Zone which applies to the Britannia Oceanfront Developments Corporation (BODC) property at Britannia Beach. This project includes commercial development as well as 87 residential dwelling units. Following rezoning adoption, it came to light that when the developer provided their overall density numbers for the commercial site, the “amenity buildings” which include the daycare, fitness centre and community hall were not included in the calculations. These uses are to be contained in existing structures on the site.
The Local Government Act S. 464 (2) (b) allows for the waiver of public hearings if the bylaw is consistent with the official community plan. The overall development plan for the BODC property is consistent with the Electoral Area D Official Community Plan. Moreover, these uses were previously presented at two previous public hearings. This zoning amendment simply adjusts the commercial gross floor area calculations in the CD2 Zone from 2000 m2 to 3000 m2 in order to include these uses.
All persons who believe that their interest in the property is affected by the proposed bylaw shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the bylaw.
