In November 2002, The District of Sooke rezoned the Sunriver lands through the adoption of Bylaw No. 102. As a condition of the rezoning, a Land Development Agreement (LDA) was entered into and registered on title (section 219 Covenant), calling for Sunriver Estates to construct soccer and slo-pitch fields and a school site on lands located at Sunriver Way and Riverstone Drive.
In 2010, Sunriver Estates and the District of Sooke agreed to attempt to relocate the playing field/school site to the east of the originally proposed site, accessing Phillips Road. As the new site is located within the Agricultural Land Reserve, an inclusion/exclusion application to the Agricultural Land Commission was required. The ALC granted approval to the application subject to various conditions.
An amendment to the tri-partite Agreement for the school site between the District of Sooke, School District #62 and Sun River is now required. A staff report from the October 28, 2013 Council Meeting presents the proposed amendment agreement.
A staff report from the January 27, 2014 Council Meeting outlines the proposed layout and design of the playing fields.
