Property owners look to subdivide

The owner of an approximately 1.2-hectare lot at 2150 Millstream Rd., near the foot of Bear Mountain Parkway, was given the go-ahead by Langford council to subdivide the property to allow for an 11-lot subdivision.

At the Dec. 19 meeting of council, the owner was directed to increase the amount of green space in his development proposal. The new plan, the rezoning for which was approved this week, calls for 15 per cent of the property to be reserved for green space, up from 1.9 per cent.

Also, the owner of 3275 Walfred Pl. had an application approved to subdivide the lot between Walfred Place and Happy Valley Road to add a second residence. Council approved the revised site plan, which included removal of an attached storage area and modifications to the facades of both homes.

The owner also promised to inform future owners that they are located near ALR lands which could generate “general farm nuisances,” and the South Vancouver Island Rangers gun range, which may generate a noise nuisance.

The owner has also agreed to replace the curb along Happy Valley Road and reorient the fire hydrant on the property, and plans to install irrigation, trees and turf on the property.

 

City pledges $2,500 for couples group

The Wounded Warriors Couples Overcoming PTSD Everyday (COPE) Program will receive a $2,500 bonus from the City of Langford. The money will cover the cost of putting an advertising wrap on the COPE vehicle and learning materials used in a series of weeklong therapy sessions for couples.

 

Amalgamation study tips received

Langford acknowledged receipt of a letter from Amalgamation Yes outlining recommended guidelines for a provincial study investigating amalgamation in the Capital Region.

In the letter, Amalgamation Yes chair Tony Heemskerk called for such a study to be “unbiased, inclusive and timely,” and invited the City to provide comment on the recommendations to the province.
