Area outlined in red is where the proposed campground will go

Comox Valley regional district okay with small campground

The regional district is on board with plans for a small campground on Forbidden Plateau Road.

William Lyle was seeking a Commercial Development Permit to allow construction on the two hectare property which is zoned Tourist Commercial Two.

The lot is at a bend on the Forbidden Plateau Road, just below the Wood Mountain Ski Park.

The property was cleared last year and the owner is preparing the land for development, scheduled to be done in three phases.

The first phase is a campground consisting of eight stalls suitable for RVs or tent camping. The second phase is to develop

an accessory building for storage, while the third phase would see construction of an office-store building for the campground, and a tourist accommodation cabin.

The owner also has the intention of building a house in which to live while operating the campground.

The Electoral Areas Services Committee of the regional district was happy with the proposal last week.

“I think it’s great you’re taking this on,” said Area C director Edwin Grieve to the owner.
