282 private dwellings that are not part of the usual housing market.28% of Tofino dwellings not available for full time residents.That's about 28% of the homes in Tofino as opposed to a BC wide average of 8.8%.
About 88% of Ucluelet's homes have long term residents with 12% being unavailable to usual residents
In Whistler 43.9 % of homes are occupied by full time residents.
2011 CensusPopulation and dwelling countsPopulation 1,876 Total private dwellings 1,033 Private dwellings occupied by usual residents 765 So in 2011 26% of homes were not available to full time residents.Not a huge increase to 2016
That's interesting 8:10 PM. Would that possibly be because Ucluelet allows development and construction of housing? instead of being governed by a "council of idiots" like Tofino?
1033 dwellings in 2011, 1037 dwellings in 2016.......?????????? Only 4 houses built in 5 years?....... No fucking wonder there's a housing shortage!
I believe Ucluelet has more stringent rules about Vacation Rentals.They also enforce their bylaws.You just don't see a cesspool of degeneracy such as Poole's in Ucluelet. Tofino has been too busy picking on small business and delaying development to worry about bylaws that might take some effort to enforce.There are no condo developments in Ucluelet that have a huge percentage of illegal vacation rentals.
The only people who care are residents who would like to purchase decent housing in Tofino . They have had no help from Council who have discouraged development.
Policies Applied to DevelopmentSmart Growth Policies were adopted into the OCP in preparation of new development and redevelopment of existing properties. During the past 3 years, Ucluelet has seen more new construction that the previous 20 years combined.Planning staff continue to develop new strategies to encourage sustainability. The direction and support of Ucluelet Mayor and Council in terms of policy approvals allow staff to exercise innovative planning techniques and create flexible options for both developers and Council. The collaboration between Council, staff, citizens and developers is the key that makes the development environment in Ucluelet function efficiently and responsibly.The Vancouver Island University (VIU) Research Alliance has identified and developed policy and planning strategies for the municipality’s sustainable growth and has created knowledge sharing opportunities for the faculty and students of VIU and the residents of Ucluelet. Funding for this initiative has come from a variety of sources, including the VIU cooperative education department, federal grants, and District of Ucluelet and VIU research grants. This funding has allowed two students to be hired on co-op work terms for the past 5 years. The placement students have had a direct influence in designing and implementing the public input process for the community planning initiatives and work on other community planning issues.
