The University Village Local Area Plan is ready to hit the desks of directors in north cowichan for the business end of things before it heads to a public hearing.

the Municipality of North Cowichan’s manager of planning and sustainability, Brian Green says the plan, which got the green light from the community planning advisory committee on Monday, will be up for debate next Wednesday.


Green says a big part of the plan is housing for students at the Vancouver Island University campus in Duncan as many of them currently commute from Victoria or Nanaimo.
