Most of the concerns raised at Thursday night’s Public Hearing on the large Nelson Landing development were about traffic.
Locals are worried the project plans to get to a 70-unit build-out before a second access is put onto the waterfront Sproat Drive.
But developer Allard Ockeloen says traffic studies show this is not a major issue.
Up to 265 homes, a hotel (with reduced capacity compared to the initial plan) and commercial space could be built along the old KFP mill site over a 20 year time frame. Red Sands Beach would be donated to the city as a park.
Council can not comment publicly until 3rd reading which is expected in the coming weeks.
*Picture – part of the development will see use of the old KFP mill Peco deck and much of the site requires remediation
