Local trust committee community planning projects are proactive initiatives that further the preserve and protect mandate. Projects can be significant and long term, such as an Official Community Plan Review, or may be relatively minor, such as an amendment to a regulation in a Land Use Bylaw.
Housing Options and Impacts Review
The intent of the project is, over several phases, to review and potentially amend policies and regulations to encourage and support a variety of housing options on Gabriola Island. PHASE 1 completed in June 2018, focused on secondary suites on lots 2 hectares or larger. The second phase of the project will consider a broader range of housing issues, and the potential for increased density on the island to accommodate increased housing options.
