The RDN is currently looking for your input on zoning amendment application PL2021-048.

Meadowood Way

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) has received an application from Timberlake-Jones Engineering on behalf of Wicklow West Holdings Ltd. and the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) to amend the “Regional District of Nanaimo Electoral Area ‘F’ Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1152, 1999” (OCP) and “Regional District of Nanaimo Electoral Area ‘F’ Zoning and Subdivision Bylaw No. 1285, 2002” (Bylaw 1285) to facilitate a 9-lot subdivision and land exchange of private lands and RDN park land. The proposed subdivision will result in six new village residential lots; a separate lot for the existing Meadowood Fire Hall; additional road dedication to connect Ashling Road to Galvin Place, and an exchange of community and regional park land to improve public access to both the Little Qualicum River Regional Park and the Meadowood Community Park.

The subject properties are located within the Qualicum River Estates Village Centre and include the Meadowood Community Park and Meadowood Fire Hall, the Little Qualicum River Regional Park, and land owned by Wicklow West Holdings Ltd.

The portion of Wicklow West holdings lands, legally described as Part of Block 359, Newcastle District, Except Part in Parcel A (DD 21980N) and Except Plans 41094, VIP54534, VIP54535, VIP57567, VIP64186, VIP64189 (PID 000441724) subject to this application is 7.47 hectares in size and is zoned R-3 (Village Residential 3) pursuant to Bylaw 1285. Lot 2, Block 359, Newcastle District, Plan VIP69346 (1800 and 1810 Galvin Place), which includes the Meadowood Community Park and Meadowood Fire Hall, is 8.94 hectares and is split-zoned P-1 (Parks and Open Space 1) and T-1 (Institutional/Community Facility). The part of Lot 1, Block 359, Newcastle District, Plan VIP69346 (PID 024585912) included in this application is a 0.25 hectare portion of the Little Qualicum River Regional Park that is zoned P-1 (Parks and Open Space 1). The OCP designates the subject properties as Park Lands and Village Centre Comprehensive Mixed Use.

Amendments to the OCP and Bylaw 1285 are required to facilitate the proposed subdivision and park land exchange by realigning the land use designations and zone boundaries with the proposed new lot lines. This is a mapping amendment to the OCP and Bylaw 1285 only, no text amendments are required.
