3191 Sherman Road

April 2018: Council has endorsed a revised project concept plan. 

This updated design has more green space, more communal space, more light, and better layouts. Currently, the Community Land Trust Foundation of BC is seeking confirmation of project funding from the Province and pursuing a development permit to ensure Municipal requirements are met. This revised concept design includes a potential 44 townhouses and 51 apartment units, 12 of which are committed to Cowichan Women Against Violence Society for transitional housing for women escaping violent situations. 

Please note: the images below are conceptual only. Building details, articulation, colour and materials are still to be determined through the development permit process.

Project Background

3191 Sherman Road is owned by North Cowichan. A public information meeting was held on January 25, 2017 to provide information to the community and seek input and ideas. A summary of public input and the meeting materials is available below. On February 21, 2017, following a Public Hearing, Council rezoned the property from Commercial Recreation (C4) to a Mixed Use Comprehensive Development Zone (CD15) to allow for affordable housing to be developed on this property. The Glen Harper Curling Club is also located on this property, and is leased by the Municipality to the club. The proposed housing development will make every effort to respect the important, existing recreational facility on this property. 

Original concept plans

The original concept plan included 28 townhouses and 36 apartment units, 12 of which were committed to Cowichan Women Against Violence Society for transitional housing for women escaping violent situations.
