On Tuesday, October 16, at the regular meeting of Gibsons Town Council, Mayor Rowe and all four councillors unanimously agreed to move Option B, an amendment to the Gospel Rock Neighbourhood Plan which will disallow waterfront development (delete cluster housing on the waterfront from the plan and maintain the designation of “green space”).
Council also voted to include a requirement to re-examine the plan in five years with a focus on density, aquifer impacts, traffic issues, and the cost of maintaining infrastructure. There will be another public hearing and an amended plan.
The Friends of Gospel Rock Society is very pleased about this outcome.
