Official community plan and zoning amendments relating to a planned residential subdivision and commercial development in Sorrento are proceeding to a public hearing.
At its June 17 meeting, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board gave second reading to the amendments relating to adjacent properties at 1302 Trans-Canada Hwy. and 1295 Notch Hill Rd. The applicant wants to increase the allowable density, from 12 units to up to 84 units, for a future residential development fronting Notch Hill Road, and a commercial development on Highway 1.
At a previous meeting, concerns were raised regarding available green space and public access. The applicant met with staff and a modified plan was presented that includes green spaces for residents, as well a route for a statutory right of way. The CSRD’s parks department is also requiring five per cent cash in lieu of park land dedication at the time of residential subdivision.
