The RDN is currently looking for your input on zoning amendment application PL2023-045..

957 Lee Road and 1236 Island Highway West

The RDN has received a zoning and official community plan amendment for the properties legally described as Lot A, District Lot 28, Nanoose District, Plan EPP80238 and Lot 1, District Lot 28, Nanoose District, Plan 37634. The subject properties are currently zoned Public 1 Subdivision District Q (PU1Q) and Residential 1 Subdivision District Q (RS1Q) (see Document Library). Lot A is currently developed with the Regional District of Nanaimo French Creek Pollution Control Centre and Lot 1 contains a dwelling unit. The Electoral Area G official community plan designates the subject properties as Institutional and Neighbourhood Residential.

In summary, the proposal is as follows:

  • to amend the Electoral Area G Official Community Plan land use designation that applies to Lot 1 from Neighbourhood Residential to Institutional and Parkland, Greenspace, and Natural Area to accommodate near-term and long-term expansion requirements of the French Creek Pollution Control Centre and for the purpose of riparian protection and potential future community trail use (See Attachment 1 for Proposed Site Plan).
  • to rezone the lands from Residential 1 and Public 1 to Public 4 with site-specific provisions that propose to increase the maximum parcel coverage from 10 to 15% to accommodate near-term and long-term expansion requirements of the French Creek Pollution Control Centre .
