Recently I received a question regarding two neighbouring properties in Brookswood, Langley.
One property would have been up for development under the new Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan - and the other property would have been on the NO-development side.
In March 2014, the public submissions convinced the Council to vote down the New Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan. Consequently, the existing Community Plan (that was adopted in 1987) would therefore continue to apply to the area.
So the question is...will these properties still be in future development areas? How will this affect their property values? Should they hope that the new updated plan (another one is in the works - to be discussed in 2015) will follow somewhat the same zone borders? The answer, from Langley Township, is that the borders of these development zones (as shown on the voted-down Plan) could very easily be changed in the future plan - and not to rely on them at all.
I will update you as soon as I hear anything more from Langley Township.
