City-Led Community Consultation

COMMENT PERIOD: January 3 – January 24, 2023

REZONING APPLICATION FOR 228 Seventh Street (REZ00229)


Westminster House Society currently operates a provincially and municipally licensed residential recovery house at 228 Seventh Street. A rezoning application has been received for this property, which would change the zoning to make it consistent with its current use. The application would also permit construction of a two-storey, detached accessory building that would help provide additional client intake and administrative spaces. The project does not propose an expansion to the number of clients served by the recovery house; rather, the building would improve and expedite clients’ access to services and better accommodate staff needs. 

The application proposes to rezone the property from Single Detached Residential District (RS-1) to a site-specific, Comprehensive Development (CD) District. The applicants have updated the design based on feedback received during the applicant-led consultation, held from November 1 to November 22, 2022.

Images of the proposed development are available on Be Heard New West. This is the last opportunity for public comment on the updated proposal prior to the application being forwarded to Council for consideration.
