Temporary Use Permit Application, Sandhill Materials Inc. - RV Park

Application

Sandhill Materials Inc. has submitted an application for a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) for an RV Park in the G5 Forestry Zone west of CN Rail right of way. Proposed development will support major projects in Kitimat by providing additional temporary worker accommodation near project sites. Site is just over two hectares with primary access from Third Street.

The applicant is seeking a permit for the maximum three-year term allowed by the BC Local Government Act.  Renewal for a second three-year term would require municipal approval. It is possible the District of Kitimat may consider a renewal request without a second notice to area business operations and land owners.

*A TUP for Lay Down Area was recently approved on the northern portion of this parcel. 

Draft Conditions

Kitimat Council and public comment, received for lay down area TUP, identified several concerns.  Staff have draft conditions prepared to address concerns to date.  Additional conditions may be added to mitigate and address issues that are identified through this public comment period. 

1. Traffic Impact Study completed to satisfaction of Municipal Engineer

Study will determine impact of RV Park and Lay Down Area traffic on proposed access route.  In the event road and intersection improvements are required, the proponent is expected to cover all costs. 

2. Landscape Plan that outlines vegetation retention, buffers and screens be completed to the satisfaction of Director of Community Planning and Development.

Trees and shrubbery line the rail tracks and the southern boundary of proposed RV Park, which contains a ditch and watercourse.  Retention of existing vegetation is preferred with new shrubs added to screen park from public view and provide privacy for park occupants. 

3. Drainage plan that mitigates any impact on other properties and on watercourse that runs south of proposed park.

4. Compliance with provincial and municipal regulations, including all provincial safety standards.

Where is it?

RV Park is proposed for a portion of Sandhill Materials Inc. lands west of CN Rail right of way.  Access will be via Third Street and private road (former Eurocan Haul Rd). See map and site plan for details.
