Kamloops council voted to send to public hearing a rezoning application that could lead to a campground being built on the Eaglepoint Golf Course in Barnhartvale.

WSP Canada Inc. is requesting agricultural land be rezoned to allow up to 70 campsites to be built between the 17th and 18th holes on the golf course.

The golf course was built in 1991 and the 68-hectare property, located at 8888 Barnhartvale Rd., was subdivided into three lots in 1996. The other two lots were set aside for future resort accommodation to be developed, with a covenant put in place to allow strata subleases.

“As strata subleases do not meet the intent of the campground definition, the covenant will need to be amended to exclude the campground development and include a definition for ‘resort’ that is consistent with other covenants registered on title,” a report to council states.

The proposed changes would include 35 full-service trailer spaces.

Under the city’s zoning bylaw, campgrounds can offer accommodations for less than six months in a calendar year, with a minimum of 25 per cent of the spaces reserved for less than 30 consecutive days.

The other lot, which is located at the northwestern corner of the property, would be used to build up to 30 apartments or townhouses at a later date.

A timeline for that is unknown.
