North Vancouver District Council Cancels Another Affordable Housing Project

North Vancouver District Council has reportedly cancelled another non-profit housing project which would have provided much needed rental housing for people on disability or income assistance, low-income seniors and youth. At the suggestion of the previous Council, Hollyburn Family Services had applied for provincial funding of the project, which the non-profit spent about a year and a half working on according to Hollyburn Family Service’s Executive Director, Nanette Taylor. “I’m very disappointed in the new district council.” Taylor said. “We’ll probably look at a different municipality.”

Rejected Project Applications

Earlier this month UDI and the GVHBA submitted a joint letter to the District of North Vancouver Mayor and Council, urging them to reconsider two rejected project applications. The rejection of these much-needed housing projects raised concerns over the municipality’s willingness to partner with home builders to deliver the added housing options that our communities desperately need.
