Title: Seniors Village Development


Seniors Village Development

Recommended Action

Whereas manufactured home parks provide a unique and affordable residential opportunity within the community, especially for older adults, but resident’s tenure is undermined by a lack of security by third party property ownership and changing market conditions;


Whereas the redevelopment of existing manufactured home parks creates housing insecurity;


Whereas the Township of Langley Housing Action Plan adopted by Council in 2013 identifies a short term objective of enhanced consideration with respect to the redevelopment of manufactured home parks, to include an array of affordable options;


Whereas it is necessary and desirable to ensure that seniors have a range of opportunities upon rezoning and redevelopment further to the Township of Langley’s Manufactured Home Park Council Policy
No. 07-121; and


Whereas these opportunities should either equal or approximate the lifestyle and relative economic framework derived from a manufactured home park;


Therefore be it resolved that Council direct staff to review the recent changes to the Brookswood Fernridge OCP in order to provide concrete options for a future Council’s consideration, for the siting of a seniors village development component either on Township owned or private lands, to be advanced with financial partnering with senior levels of government and community amenity charges in order to build affordable housing for our most vulnerable residents who may be displaced by the redevelopment of any existing manufactured home park.
