To address the unique challenges that hillside developments face and their impact on the landscape, In March 2019, Council identified the creation of hillside Development Standards as a strategic priority for the Village. The Draft Hillside Development Design Guidelines were presented to the Committee of the Whole on Tuesday November 5th.
The Guidelines are intended for use by developers, designers, builders and Staff to define the intent and purpose of hillside development in Pemberton and are not intended to be regulatory. They are to be considered with development and subdivision applications in hillside areas at pre-application meetings. They will also be made available to the general public. The guidelines are structured to encourage innovation and flexibility; designers are encouraged to prepare the most appropriate design given the unique characteristics of the site. Comments must be submitted before December 2nd.
