JANUARY 24, 2010

Langford council is considering a proposal for a 501-unit housing development on land now zoned for agriculture.

The municipality’s planning committee will consider a staff report tomorrow on a development calling for 102 single-family lots, 61 townhouses and 338 apartments on the approximately 14 hectares at 936 Flatman Ave.

At least part of the property is in the Agricultural Land Reserve, which means the land use can’t be changed without approval from the provincial Agricultural Land Commission. The approval is critical for the development’s road access.

The report suggests councillors hold off until the Agricultural Land Commission weighs in.
