The District of Central Saanich has launched a study about future growth management. Let's Talk Housing invites residents and business owners to learn about housing issues and trends, District housing policies and zoning regulations, and envision the future of housing in Central Saanich.
The goal of the study is to develop policies, guidelines and regulations that will foster desirable neighbourhood growth and densification of village centres in a manner that is sensitive to the character of Central Saanich. We want to hear from you!
Here is how you can get involved:
1. Attend a Let's Talk Housing open house
Join Central Saanich staff to offer your feedback and learn more about the project. Your input will be reviewed by staff and used to inform policies. Two identical sessions are being offered on separate days.
- View infill housing building types that can create additional density in established neighbourhoods, and comment on your preferred infill forms.
- See and play with miniatures representations of building types on standard Central Saanich lots.
- Share your thoughts on residential densification and infill and take our survey
- Learn about the project, types of infill (and the benefits and challenges associated with them), our objectives and the results of past studies.
- Bring the kids! There will be activities for children.
