Cumberland council gave first and second reading Monday to the Village's updated Official Community Plan.

The 2013 OCP review and revisioning process started in January 2013, and after a year of research, planning, and extensive community consultation, the process is nearing completion.

The updated OCP will now be referred to other agencies for feedback, as required in the Local Government Act.

According to tentative schedule set out in OCP process timetable, a public hearing is expected in mid-April, with third reading expected later that month. Final adoption of the new OCP bylaw is estimated to be in late-June.

Work on the first eight lots of a planned 33-lot residential development on Carlisle Lane is expected to start within a month, according to property owner Dale Querin.

Cumberland council voted Monday to grant a development permit for the first phase of the project at 2882 Carlisle Lane. The nearly 10-acre property is bordered by Carlisle Lane, 10th Street and Ulverston Avenue.

Querin, who has been building in the Comox Valley for over 20 years, plans to build the homes with his sons Brandon and Joel.

The project is expected to be completed in three phases and include coach houses and secondary suites, plus a park area and trails.
