Reject application to subdivide lot of environmental significance adjacent Cedar Hill Park

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Once again one of the neighbourhoods around Cedar Hill Park is confronted with another completely inappropriate development, this time at the junction of Tattersall and James Heights. And once again we must enlist the support of our neighbours to "Preserve and Protect" Cedar Hill Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods.  

A rocky bluff immediately adjacent to the park is slated for major blasting and development.  The lot is part of one of the larger Garry Oak ecosystems in the park and home to deer and many other bird and wildlife species. It is designated as an Environmentally Significant Area by Saanich. This rocky bluff has remained undeveloped for 60 years and is now part of the fabric of the neighbourhood. The proposed development will negatively impact every user of Cedar Hill Park. 

Our larger community has been successful in the past in Preserving, Protecting and Expanding the park while helping to insure all development is appropriate to our community. Once again we must let Saanich know that this development conflicts with our values and priorities. 

Please join your neighbours in opposing this development. If we stand together today we can support our neighbours and Preserve and Protect the park. We will together be stronger as a community in the knowledge that all the neighbourhoods adjacent to the park will work to insure that proposed developments are appropriate. 

We, the residents of Tattersall, James Heights, Tracksell and surrounding local streets, and all users of Cedar Hill Park, object to this application. We ask the Approving Officer to reject the application. We believe the property should be donated or sold to Saanich to become part of Cedar Hill Park.
