Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

GWEB HOLDINGS LTD has made an application to re-develop the existing gravel pit located at 43837 & 43873 Lougheed Highway (PIDs 013-445-871, 012-051-853, 012-051-888, 012-051-900, 013-445-901) into a residential subdivision with approximately 290 dwelling units.

The proposed subdivision includes:

  • 155 single-family residential lots
  • 68 townhouse units
  • 67 multi-family residential units


The proposed development presents significant challenges and implications for the Lake Errock community, FVRD services, and potential taxation. While the physical development of the site has been planned by the applicant, there are important considerations related to integrating the development into the surrounding community, identifying off-site servicing needs, addressing the financial sustainability of new services, and conducting broad consultations. The application-led process has created complexities that require simultaneous neighborhood planning alongside application processing.

To address these challenges and District Board passed a resolution requesting capacity funding from the applicant. Consultant support is needed for various aspects, including the Servicing Feasibility Study, Local Sanitary Servicing Plan, Fire Protection and Fire Underwriters Survey Study, and planning and engineering review costs.



August 23, 2023 - Update

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is hosted a public information meeting on August 22, 2023 for the application to re-develop the Lake Errock Gravel Pit. The application is not approved.
