Lake Country subdivision proposed next to wildlife corridor

A new development permit is being proposed to council along Tyndall Road

A permit for large subdivision bordering a wildlife corridor will go to Lake Country council this week.

If approved, two properties along Tyndall Road will include 23 units comprised of six duplexes, a triplex, and two fourplexes.

The units would each have two-car garages, driveways and some may include an option to have three bedrooms.

A portion of the properties has been deemed to have high value as a wildlife corridor, which, if approved, is not to be disturbed, according to documents for the March 19 council meeting.

Variances are also requested with to extend a cul-de-sac extension from 150 m to 270 m and to build retaining walls higher than 1.5 metres.

The permit requires the applicant to mitigate the risk of wildfire around the property, trim vegetation and trees within 30 metres and the proposed structures should be spaced three to six metres apart.

Fire resistant roofing and walks are also a requirement, and roofs need to be steep in order to prevent the collection of debris, the report says.
