Background

July 2017

Park Royal Shopping Centre submitted a development application for 752 Marine Drive (the former location of the White Spot restaurant) that was originally received in 2012.

The proposal has been on hold since 2015 as the applicant was tasked with responding to a number of items by Council.

Since that time, the Marine Drive Local Area Plan and Design Guidelines has been adopted as part of the Official Community Plan by Council earlier this year (June 2017). It is expected that the applicant will be revising its proposal to comply with the new Local Area Plan. 

This page will be updated with new information once it becomes available.

January 2015

The project appeared before the Design Review Committee (DRC) on January 29, 2015 in order for the Committee to evaluate the applicant’s response to earlier DRC comments. Please note: drawing files have been compressed for the web. Please contact the Planning Department for high resolution files.
