Secondary rental suites to be allowed in most Chilliwack neighbourhoods

New zoning and secondary suites policy for Chilliwack cap off more than a year of study.

Secondary suites will now be permitted in most Chilliwack neighbourhoods dominated by single family detached homes.

The unanimous council vote Tuesday at city hall capped off more than a year of in-depth study on secondary suites, with the urgent goal of creating more affordable housing for Chilliwack.

“We are hopeful that these zoning amendments will ease some of the pressure on Chilliwack’s housing supply,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz.

What will happen if the proposed quarry is approved in Harrison Hot Springs?

Harrison Hot Springs residents are worried a rock quarry proposed for a nearby mountainside will keep visitors away.

More than 1,500 people have signed a petition asking the Ministry of Mines to turn down an application by TC Merritt Valley Farms to remove about 120,000 tonnes of sand and gravel each year from a seven-hectare site near the highway into the popular tourism destination.

Dust and noise from blasting and crushing are a concern, as well as the environmental impact on a stream at the base of the proposed quarry, which drains into the Miami River.

ANOTHER HAPPY SELLER!

I happily recommend Shannon Babcock to others. Shannon is a well known realtor in my area and has a solid reputation. Word of mouth is truly the best advertising. She sold my home creating a bidding war and was an aggressive negotiator when helping me secure my purchase in a fast moving real estate market.  She was a huge support, very available taking calls / texts late at night, answering all my questions. Shannon is very trustworthy and really knows her stuff. Give her call! Jackie Lawlor
