Sidney has a good official community plan

Re: Sidney spot zone scrap, PNR, Aug. 15.

Given that I have had serious doubts about the active rejection of constructive criticism from the community by the Sidney council this year I was pleased to read your article ‘Sidney spot zone scrapped’.

Finally some real leadership and response to real concerns raised by citizens.

We have a good OCP with clearly designated zoning and developers should abide by the plan.

Certainly we need to encourage small units, financially accessible to young first time homebuyers but spot zoning, as Mayor Cross pointed out, is a slippery slope.

Let’s hope this newly found backbone will endure when other developers come knocking and it is not just an election stunt.

Stay strong Councillors!
