Delta throwback: Transforming Scott Road, finally

A planning process is underway to come up with a new vision to encourage redevelopment, changing the area from industrial and service uses to a residential neighbourhood with mixed-use buildings along Scott Road.

It’s anticipated that the plan will accommodate up to 2,200 new residential units with a range of heights, but predominantly six storeys with a few high-rises.

Following further consultation, the neighbourhood plan will be refined and a final report provided to council.
