Courtenay council unanimously approved a development permit Monday for a proposed duplex on Cumberland Road.

According to a staff report from development services, a single-family home sits on the property at 1030 Cumberland Rd. Robannah Developments Ltd. plans to redevelop the property with a front-to-back duplex, featuring a pitched roof, gabled ends and covered porches.

According to a letter from Shawn Vincent of Robannah, a public meeting in July included “general positive comments” from neighbouring residents.

Couns. Ronna-Rae Leonard and Bill Anglin said they are happy to see infill in the area, and Anglin noted the duplex design appears to fit well with the rest of the community.

Nearly 30 Comox Valley residents signed a petition to the City of Courtenay asking that roundabouts be made the first option when improving or installing intersections.

In a delegation to council, Mel McLachlan outlined some benefits of roundabouts, noting increased safety and reduced idling and air pollution. McLachlan added the petition and presentation were designed to keep the idea of more roundabouts in Courtenay at the front of council’s and City staff’s minds.
