Another gas station in Silverdale is in the works.

Silverdale gas station moves forward

Mission council unanimously approves third reading after reviewing additional information


A fourth gas station is in the works for Silverdale.

Mission council gave third reading to the project Monday evening after reviewing additional information from staff about the project. At a public hearing on March 16, residents who lived near the proposed commercial hub at the corner of Lougheed Highway and St. Anthony’s Way, spoke to council about their concerns for the area’s water supply.

A preliminary assessment from a hydrogeologist found an additional well on the site will not impact surrounding ones. Recommendations were also made to mitigate any impact on wells in the area, such as testing the new well and monitoring water levels of existing wells.

The developers have also promised to build an entrance way feature for the district, but according to Mike Younie, manager of development services, the project is still being negotiated.

It will be something that reflects the community and captures the historical aspect of Silverdale, said Younie, who also noted staff did not support the project when it was first proposed because it did not conform with the Official Community Plan.

“We worked hard with the developer to get to a comfortable level with this,” said Younie.

Property owner Nirvair Singh has been in discussions with Mission’s planning department since December 2013 to build a new gas service station, drive thru restaurant, and several retail units at 29550 and 29560 Lougheed Highway.

The properties are designated for development in the district’s employment land strategy and market research conducted by the developer indicates another gas station in the area would be successful.
