Information compiled on development bylaw

Public debate over a controversial bylaw in Coldstream may soon be eased.

Public debate over a controversial bylaw in Coldstream may soon be eased.

A list of all general and specific off-site works requests from the district is being compiled following public concerns around a proposed subdivision, development and servicing bylaw.

“There’s some uncertainty and confusion among the public as to when and where off-site works may be required,” said Coun. Doug Dirk, who pushed for a list to be drawn up.

Despite some concerns about the amount of staff time required to create such a list, the request was unanimously passed by council.

“We were attacked severely during the election on this bylaw,” said Coun. Maria Besso, who suggests some information for the public may have eased some resident concerns.

“We never actually publicly made a press release or put anything up on our website and that’s something we need to do.”

Since the bylaw is already in the process of being amended, it is hoped the information might aid the process.

“I think it’s work that has to be done anyway,” said Coun. Pat Cochrane.
