Land use discussed

The Columbia-Shuswap Regional District has been discussing proposed land use changes in the Falkland area

The Columbia-Shuswap Regional District has been discussing proposed land use changes in the Falkland area.

The CSRD board considered non-farm use for a proposed golf course, clubhouse and camping on Schaeffer Road, east of Falkland. It defeated the staff recommendation to support the golf course and club house.

The board recommended approval for a subdivision request concerning property on Smith Road.

Currently there are three dwellings on the 32.37 hectare property and only two are permitted.

The owners are requesting the subdivision to bring it into compliance with Salmon Valley land use bylaw.

Both applications will be forwarded to the Agricultural Land Commission with their respective recommendations.
