Public hearing held for manufactured-home park bylaw

The term of the manufactured-home park preliminary layout approval (PLA) is extended from six months to a year

Directors of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District held a public hearing for a zoning amendment bylaw and a manufactured-home park bylaw during a board meeting on April 30.

The update to the manufactured-home bylaw is primarily for the purposes of: 1) definitions/provision concordance;

2) better providing for bare-land strata subdivision of MHPs; and

3) advisable clarifications based upon recent litigation.

The term of the manufactured-home park preliminary layout approval (PLA) is extended from six months to a year; violations could be enforced via ticketing and adjudication; strata subdivision is explicitly enabled; and definitions for manufactured homes, RVs, campgrounds, etc. are identical across all overlapping bylaws.

Following the hearing, the TNRD board of directors passed the bylaws.
