Frequently Asked Questions:

​Q: What are the rental costs?

  • The pad fees are $500 per month which includes the land rental, the land portion of the property tax, the maintenance of all the common areas including the maintenance of streets, snow removal, street lights, and the sewage treatment plant; as the regional district does not provide sewer in our area.

Q: How do I know my investment is safe if the land owners decided to sell?

  • As part of the development agreement with the District of Sechelt, the land owners have agreed to lower the previous density not allowing the density to be increased in the future by putting a covenant on the land. This protects all home owners from the possibility of the land being rezoned to higher density for redevelopment no matter who owns the land in the future.
