Concerns have been raised regarding the proposed townhouse development on Princeton Avenue in Peachland, which could bring an additional 50 units. The developer has said they will not build a southbound left-turn lane despite earlier requests from council, but instead offer a financial contribution to enhance the town’s infrastructure.
The strata development would hook up to existing services and no new services are required. It will not be a gated community and 10% of units would contain long-term flex rental suites with their own entrances.
The developer is also willing to contribute $4,000 to upgrade four bus stops near the area and provide a parkland rest area/pullout as well as cash for a 5% park requirement. Nearby property ‘Somerset Reach’ is also constructing 56 townhouses in 14 buildings approximately 500 meters away from the site. No decisions have been made about this proposal yet.
