The rector of Holy Trinity Cathedral, the Reverend Dale Yardy asked the Executive Archdeacon to let the diocese know that their building project has moved another step forward. New Westminster's City Council passed the following motion on Monday, February 19th: "That Council direct staff to process the proposed application as outlined in the report to the LUPC [Land Use and Planning Committee] on January 29, 2018."
This will allow the next phase of the project to begin with public consultations and to work with the City of New Westminster and their consultants to design both the Tower and the seismic upgrade on the Cathedral.
This exciting project has been in the works since 2011 number and has had a history of coming up against a few barriers, it is great to hear such good news.
Construction is not projected to begin until Winter 2020.
