New multi-use building coming to Ladner Trunk Road

City planning staff note the development would formalize the parking on site, thereby making it more efficient and likely increasing the number of vehicles that can fit on site at any one time

The site is located on the north side of Ladner Trunk Road between Linden Drive and 55B Street, with 48B Avenue at the rear of the property.

A new multi-purpose building in Ladner, that will include space for the South Delta Food Bank, has moved a step closer to reality.

Delta council has unanimously approved an application by Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada for a development variance permit to build the new structure on space occupying what’s now the front Lighthouse Church parking lot at 5545 Ladner Trunk Road.

The church site currently houses the South Delta Food Bank and a childcare space, operating out of temporary buildings. Those services will be moved into the new 20,300 square foot building. The temporary buildings would then be removed.

The first two floors of the new building will house the childcare and food bank operations while the third floor is designed as office space to accommodate general administration for the users of the site, as well as other community services.

The owner is proposing to provide 84 parking spaces under a joint-use parking scheme.

A report to council notes that a parking demand analysis undertaken by the owner indicates that on-site parking would be sufficient with the exception of major holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

For all other times of the year, the parking supply is expected to be in excess of demand.
