Proposal would split Canora land into four parts

North Saanich man wants to split his Canora Road property into four parcels

Council hopes to have servicing questions flushed out before it can OK an application to rezone land at 9299 Canora Rd.

The advisory planning commission will also have a look at a rezoning application.

Property owner Jonathan Rennison hopes to rezone the 1.5 acre lot, which is adjacent to one-third acre lots on Bakerview Avenue, from rural agricultural to single family residential.

The plan is to eventually subdivide the family property into four lots for him and three siblings.

“I’m only seeking a rezoning, I haven’t submitted a subdivision application yet,” Rennison said. Sewer connections in the area are at capacity and he’s waiting to hear what costs are associated with sewer upgrades.

“I like living in North Saanich,” Rennison said. “I’m a carpenter by trade and I’d like to end up building a house on one of these properties for myself.”

A five metre trail on the southern boundary of the property would be dedicated as a public trail linking Reay Creek Park and Rotary Park.

Council will have staff prepare the bylaw to amend the zoning, and defer adoption until the applicant addresses increased servicing needs.
