Bowser area campground gets green light from RDN

Regional District of Nanaimo gives preliminary approval to development proposal

The board of the Regional District of Nanaimo this week gave a green light to a planned RV park in the Bowser-Deep Bay area.

The development permit application, which received preliminary approval at the RDN committee of the whole meeting, was submitted by David and Penny Aalhus to permit a resort vehicle park campground consisting of 10 recreational vehicle sites.

The application also requested permission to redevelop one of the two buildings currently on site into an office and washroom for the facility. The second dwelling is proposed to be used as the caretaker’s residence.

The lot is located at 5996 Island Highway West near the shore of Qualicum Bay.

The RDN move still has to be finalized at the next regular board meeting.
