Modular housing delayed

After pushback from some of its potential new neighbours, BC Housing is reconsidering its plan to put up temporary, supportive housing in a Kelowna business park.

Kelowna City Council was scheduled to weigh in on the controversial modular housing application yesterday, but the housing authority made a last-minute decision to pull its request.

Just before council was set to debate the project, mayor Colin Basran read a statement from the developers, who said they had heard the concerns of their neighbours, and were going to take some time to make the project more “aesthetically pleasing.”

Council passed a motion to defer the application, and a modified version will likely come back before them very soon.
