Ladysmith council begins approval process for Rocky Creek Road housing development

Ladysmith town council carried first and second reading of proposed zoning and Official Community Plan (OCP) amendments to support a large housing development on Rocky Creek Road.

A conceptual plan shown to council at its Feb. 1 meeting shows a total of 282 dwelling units on the 4.7-hectare site at 1301/1391 Rocky Creek Road. There is a proposed mix of single-family dwellings, apartments and townhomes. The plan also shows 1,650 square metres of commercial space, spread between three buildings.

The amendments will have to go through a public hearing before council approves, refines or denied the application.
