The subject site is designated Residential-Ground Oriented Infill in the recently adopted New Westminster Official Community Plan. The land use designation was created to allow for more diversity, availability and affordability of ground oriented housing, while keeping the general character of a neighbourhood. The designation allows for a wide range of housing forms up to a 1.0 FSR and is intended to provide flexibility and allow for creative design and housing solutions. Examples of possible housing forms include duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes or infill townhouses and rowhomes. Garages are not permitted within the RGO guidelines and the City has voiced a preference for pad parking over carports. Underground parking will be considered if it is not clearly visible and adds certain benefits to the development.
The subject properties are located in the Sapperton neighbourhood of New Westminster. Sapperton is home to Royal Columbian Hospital, the Sapperton Skytrain Station and the Brewery District which provides numerous commercial and retail amenities. Sapperton is located just 5 minutes away from Highway 1 which provides quick and efficient access across Metro Vancouver. New Westminster has experienced strong population growth, with a current population of 76,800. The Official Community Plan anticipates the population within the city to grow to 103,871 by 2041.
