The SHCA has received the following letter from the District which will be discussed at the June 5th board meeting. Input is requested by July 4th. There are some information session scheduled for the week of May 23rd. Click on the Have Your Say link for more information.
The District of Sechelt is in the process of updating Zoning Bylaw 25, which is the foundational zoning bylaw first adopted in 1987. The new Zoning Bylaw 580 will align densities, land-use and housing options with the ideas approved by Council through the 2011 District Official Community Plan.
This zoning bylaw update is simply an update to the existing outdated land-use policy document, it will guide the direction and location of future development across the District. The updated bylaw was received by Sechelt Council at the April 27th Committee of the Whole. The bylaw will move through several iterations, with a tentative goal of reaching bylaw adoption by October 2022. First reading of the bylaw is anticipated at Council this week on Wednesday, May 4th.
As part of this process, the District is looking to receive feedback on the bylaw update. Further information can be found online on the District’s Have Your Say webpage, which has a link to the interactive Zoning Bylaw 580 web map.
The tentative plan at this time is to hold a public hearing in early July.
