40-unit Ladner townhouse plan sent to public hearing

The public will get a chance to weigh in on a proposal to build a 40-unit townhouse development on 57th Street in Ladner.

Delta council gave preliminary approval to the project Feb. 10 and forwarded the application to a public hearing. The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. at City Hall. See more details in the print edition of the Feb. 13th edition on page A15 and on the City of Delta's website at: http://www.delta.ca/your-government/news-events/news-releases/2020/02/12/february-25-2020-public-hearing.

The site is located one block north of Ladner Trunk Road and consists of seven lots, each containing a single-family home, which would be demolished if the application receives civic approval.

The owner is proposing to consolidate the properties in order to build three-storey townhouses.

Staff has been consulting with the public through direct notification since March of last year and also hosted a public information meeting last spring.

According to a Delta staff report, the majority of concerns received from residents to date include traffic congestion, drainage and capacity at local elementary schools.
