News Update—September 2020

Gabriola Housing Society has applied to the Gabriola Local Trust Committee (LTC) to build affordable rental housing at our Paisley Place site, including studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom homes. Residents will be of all ages, and 70% of the 24 homes will house people with low to moderate incomes. On June 25, the LTC gave first reading (of three) to the proposed changes to the zoning bylaw and Official Community Plan that are needed to enable the project to go forward.

On August 26, Gabriola’s LTC held their Community Information Meeting about the proposed changes by Zoom webinar. Click Community Consultation on the Islands Trust current applications page to link to the recorded CIM. This link also allows you to read public correspondence and technical reports related to this application.
