The thin edge of the wedge

Proposal by NS council to permit higher density housing is another effort to bow to developer pressure and flies in face of OCP says reader

The proposal by the majority of North Saanich council to permit higher density housing is plainly another effort to bow to developer pressure and flies in the face of our OCP.

Further and most importantly, it will not provide affordable accommodation for employees here, not, at least in the current, world-wide economic downturn, to which there is no end in sight. The proposal will almost certainly be the thin end of the wedge with higher and higher housing densities and their attendant problems.

Mayor Finall is absolutely right, more time should be spent examining it and taking into account the strong negative public reaction to the proposal.
