Housing development’s height brings plan back to council

Two-foot change means developer will have to go through Central Saanich council in 2012

A height variance request marks phase three of the Brentwood shopping centre redevelopment.

Central Saanich council OK’d the two extra feet sought for the fifth building in the redevelopment of the centre at West Saanich and Verdier roads.

The district approved the development four years ago, but a change in road grades meant allowing for a little more height to the multi-family residential building slated for the back portion of the property.  It will go to a development variance permit hearing in the new year.
