City’s rental policy nets award

The City of New Westminster’s planning division has won a silver award of excellence from the Planning Institute of B.C.

The award recognizes the city’s rental housing policy which has generated several applications for new rental housing since it was instituted.

“It’s creating a positive change in the supply of long-term rental housing in New Westminster,” said Bev Grieve, the city’s director of development services.

The jury member who presented the award said New Westminster’s policy is a well thought-out, complex initiative and practical. The presenter also pointed out the policy could easily be adopted by other communities.
