Pemberton Woods Master Plan
Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) is initiating a Master Planning process to guide the future of our Campus on Richmond Road (known as Pemberton Woods) for many generations to come. As we enter into this planning process, we thought it would be helpful for our neighbours to know a bit more about us and our plans.
Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) invites you to attend our second Open House and Information Session to discuss its Master Planning process. The main purpose of this session is to provide you with information about:
- The preliminary findings of a transportation analysis;
- The proposed design guidelines that will inform future building design, including height, setbacks, and buffer areas; and
- Additional site planning and precedent imagery that shows the long-term campus vision.
Why is GNS Initiating a Master Planning Process?
- To allow GNS to be environmentally, socially, and financially sustainable for the next 100 years
- To provide more certainty for the School and the neighbourhood about what the future of the Campus looks like
- To establish criteria that will govern future improvements to the Campus
- To formalize a plan to improve green space around the Campus for recreation, and to provide buffers and privacy for neighbours
- To improve traffic conditions on neighbouring streets
- To improve building aesthetics and sustainability, and provide flexible spaces that can adapt to future teaching needs
- To consider some potential on-campus housing for young staff, and out of town students
- To ensure our student population remains at its current capacity
Outcomes of the Planning Process
The development of a Master Plan, which includes neighbourhood engagement, will be taking place over the next several months.
The resulting Plan will provide the basis for a zoning application to the City of Victoria that will support exceptional educational programs over the longer term, and provide the neighbourhood with certainty about GNS’ future within it.
Please join us at our next Community Open House on June 11 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
