To fulfill the Town’s vision of a higher density town centre, a new land use district was created and approved by Town Council. This allows for a greater variety of housing styles to enable the ‘downtown vibrancy’ that is sought. For this reason, the Neighbourhood Residential (R7) District was adopted.
The R7 Land Use District is a flexible residential district that allows for a variety of lot sizes, from small to medium to large.
The Royal Park Concept Plan was approved in principle by Town Council, along with a recommendation to proceed with a subdivision application. The next step is for La Vita Land and All-Rite Group of Companies to submit a subdivision application to the Province and a rezoning application to the Town. The predominant uses are proposed to be accommodated by the Neighbourhood Residential (R7) District. The mixed use area is facilitated by the (C2) Downtown Commercial District in the Town, which provides a transition to residential development to the south.
*Land uses for the portion of White City land within Stage 2 will be determined in the future.
