Brookswood sees 20-acre proposed housing development

Langley Township council will consider the project at its next meeting on Monday.

Langley Township council will consider an application to build 84 new homes on 20 acres opposite a Brookswood park at next Monday’s meeting.

The lots, which run from 33A Avenue to 35A Avenue on the east side of 208th Street, are slightly to the south of Brookswood Secondary and to the across the street from the Dale Ball Passive Park.

The proposal was submitted last spring, before the Township council approved the new Brookswood-Fernridge Official Community Plan (OCP).

While any future developments will have to be planned under the rules of the new OCP, development projects that were put forward before that vote are being allowed to proceed through the rezoning process.

If approved at first and second reading, the project will go to a public hearing at a future meeting.
