Gellatly Village plan moving ahead

Staff told to prepare plan for Goat's Peak area proposal.

West Kelowna council has told its staff to go ahead with drafting an Official Community Plan amendment bylaw to exclude land in the Goats Peak area south of Westbank from the Goats Peak Neighbourhood Plan Area and draft a zoning amendment bylaw related to the proposed Gellatly Village development.

The decision is described by the municipality as a step to gain feedback from council as it relates to proposed development.

The Gellatly Village proposal would see a what is described as a  significant development resulting in about 1,500 residential units and 10,000-square-metres of  commercial space within the Goat’s Peak Neighbourhood Plan area on two parcels of land, abutting and divided by Gellatly Road.

The applicant is proposing phased plan that would run over 10 years for the development and a comprehensive development zone to secure and guide the  project and provide associated community benefits.

The next steps in the application process involve a review by the municipality’s Advisory Planning Commission and an applicant-driven community consultation before the bylaws receive first reading by council.
