Sun Peaks Resort LLP (SPR) is seeking Crown grants for new residential lots, three in the East Village and one in the West Village. After the last lot owned by SPR was sold in 2017 the company  is moving ahead with additional development laid out in the resort’s master plan.

The submissions for Crown grants are shared with other stakeholders or impacted parties such as first nations groups and provincial ministries.

SPR real estate manager Peter Nixon said the process is in the early stages and will likely take eight months to a year.

The layout of the lots can be seen in archaeological assessment documents submitted to Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality council at the June 5 special council meeting.

Lots 34 and 35 are between Bridge Gate and at the end of Valley Drive. A proposed road runs from just south of the East Village Skiway skier overpass and Lot 36 A sits on either side of said road.

Lot 70 is the only lot currently proposed for the West Village, beside where The Burfield hostel now sits after being completed last winter.

Nixon said plans are still in the early stages but lot 36 is envisioned as a residential development with single family homes or duplexes, lots 34 and 35 are planned as multi family residences similar to Echo Landing or Village Walk and lot 70 may be another build like the neighbouring hostel.

He added there looks to be a demand for more single family lots and developments and they may apply for more grants next year depending on the direction decided by the board.
