Electoral Area C Official Community Plan Amendment (Shuswap Country Estates) Bylaw No. 725-12

What is Electoral Area C Official Community Plan Amendment (Shuswap Country Estates) Bylaw No. 725-12?

The owners of Lot 1, Section 33, Township 21, Range 10, West of the 6th Meridian, Kamloops Division, Yale District, Plan KAP55494, Except Plans KAP65068, KAP69965, and KAP75073 and Lot 1, Section 33, Township 21, Range 10, West of the 6th Meridian, Kamloops Division, Yale District, Plan 34273, located at 1885 Tappen Notch Hill Road, have applied for an Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment to re-designate the subject properties as shown hatched below:

When the Electoral Area C OCP Bylaw No. 725 was adopted in March of 2014, it had designated the portion of the property where the existing Shuswap Country Estates development was located as SH – Small Holdings. Shuswap Country Estates is a manufactured home community consisting of 54 units, the SH designation allows for a maximum residential density of 1 unit per 4 ha.

The applicant is seeking to expand the manufactured home community onto the property to the south and to further subdivide that property into 3 large rural lots. The proposed Official Community Plan Amendment is shown in the diagram below:

A first Public Hearing was held July 24, 2018 at the Carlin Community Hall. As a result of the input received, the Board of the CSRD at their August 16, 2018 regular meeting reviewed the Public Hearing results and directed staff to require additional information from the developer, to satisfy public concerns, and delegated the holding of a new Public Hearing, should those concerns be addressed. The applicant has provided this additional information, and therefore a second public hearing is being scheduled.
