Landowner wants to subdivide property

Sooke District council has given the first three readings to a bylaw that will see a portion of property located at 6431 Sooke Rd. subdivided to create a new parcel of land with a minimum lot size of 3,767 square feet.

The property contains an existing house and small shed.

Carol Brown, the applicant, is proposing to create one additional lot that will have frontage along Sooke Road.

The property currently shares an access point onto Sooke Road with a neighbouring property. The new lot will also share the access point.

The rezoning is consistent with Sooke’s official community plan.

 

Municipal council in Christmas spirit

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

District of Sooke council will spend up to $10,000 to buy Christmas and lighting decorations for town centre.

The decorations will include items for 12 streetlight standards.

Mayor Maya Tait also instructed municipal staff to look at a Christmas tree costs for the centre of the Brownsey Boulevard roundabout.

 

District updates tax exemption bylaw

District of Sooke council did a little housekeeping last week with the update of its permissive tax exemption bylaw.

The bylaw adds exemptions for The Hope Centre at 6750 West Coast Road and amends a section for a mobile home registration owned by Sooke Community Association.
