Gallagher Lake Commercial Development Permit Area

The Regional District has implemented an Gallagher Lake Commercial Development Permit Area in Electoral Area “C” (Rural Oliver) in order to establish objectives for the “form and character” of new commercial development

The Gallagher Lake commercial area is located on the west side of the Frontage Road with a focus on local, tourist commercial uses and other service.  With Highway 97 running right through the community it is highly visible to many motorists. The commercial area serves as a strong focal point and it provides a sense of identity for the community. Residents would like to encourage the commercial area to develop as a pedestrian oriented, vibrant hub of mixed use commercial and residential land uses.  Future development should be harmonious and in keeping with the current scale and character of Gallagher Lake.

The DP process requires an application fee, completed application form and the submission of materials (i.e. site plan and elevations) in accordance with the guidelines contained in the Electoral Area “C” Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw.  All “form and character” DPs are approved or refused by the Regional District Board.
