North Enderby Timber backed

RDNO has approved numerous variances for construction at the Highway 97A mill

A large Enderby business has overcome another hurdle in its bid to expand.

The Regional District of North Okanagan has approved numerous variances for construction at the North Enderby Timber site on Highway 97A.

“They are a larger employer,” said Denis Delisle, rural Enderby alternate director.

“They are an existing business and a lot of the bylaws were brought in after they began operation and it doesn’t fit with what they are doing.”

The variances include reducing the front yard setback of the log yard, waiving the requirements to screen the log yard, reducing the rear yard setback of the dry kiln and waiving the requirement that off-street parking be paved and curbed.

However, the variances will only be issued if certain conditions are followed.

The conditions include provision of 82 gravel parking spaces, screening of a portion of the outside storage area and a buffer between the property and agricultural land to the north.

Greg McCune, Enderby director, is pleased the RDNO board has allowed North Enderby Timber to proceed.

“They are great corporate citizens and this is another step towards them operating more efficiently,” he said.
