NOTICE IS GIVEN that Council will consider First and Second Reading on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023, at 6:30 pm in relation to the proposed “Colwood Land Use Bylaw No. 151, 1989, Amendment No. 204 (Div. 6 - Transit Growth Area 1), Bylaw No. 1986, 2023”.

DATE: Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023 

TIME: 6:30 pm

PLACE: Council Chambers, 3300 Wishart Road, Colwood BC

PURPOSE: The purpose of Amendment No. 204 (Div. 6 - Transit Growth Area 1) is to add a new Transit Growth Area 1 (TGA1) zone to Division 6 of the Land Use Bylaw, which will regulate development, land use and siting of buildings on lands that are designated by the Official Community Plan (OCP) as “Transit Growth Area.” The TGA1 zone would:

  • Provide a framework for the City to evaluate future rezoning proposals to ensure that there is a coordinated and consistent approach to regulating development in the Transit Growth Area.
  • Ensure the successful delivery of the vision for Transit Growth Areas as described by Section 7 of the OCP while demonstrating best practices in urban design and architecture.
  • Enable developments that sensitively increase density to support transit use, housing choice/diversity, and walking/cycling, while providing a gentle transition in scale to existing predominantly single-detached residential areas.

SUBJECT PROPERTY: This Bylaw applies to all lands within the City of Colwood that are designated by the Official Community Plan as Transit Growth Area.

INSPECTION OF MATERIALS: Copies of the proposed bylaw and related materials can be viewed here or in person at Colwood City Hall from May  15th  to May 23rd, 2023 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday excluding statutory holidays.
