This application seeks to rezone a 1.62 ha (4.01ac) property near the Denman village that is currently zoned Agriculture (A) to an appropriate zone that allows for the development of eight units of seniors affordable housing and recognises the existing (single dwelling) residential use. This application will require amendments to the Official Community Plan and Land Use Bylaw to allow for a future two lot subdivision and an increase of eight densities to one of those lots.
