Zoning change opens Ittatsoo Bay

A change in zoning has opened up some big and breathtaking real estate spots in Ittatsoo Bay.

After a pending zoning approval was approved, parcels were rezoned country/residential by the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District on March 12. The property was split into five-acre independent lots – 16 in the 110-acre Midlands and 10 on the 170-acre Oceanfront, said co-owner David Martin.

“We’re looking forward to moving forward with those phases,” said Martin.

About a 20-minute drive from Ucluelet, the property can be occupied permanent, yearround, and the zoning allows for all kinds of usage, from craft industry and personal to farming.

“It’s intended to provide people with a larger piece of land where they can fulfill any one of their dreams,” Martin said.

There’s no hydro electricity, so browsers should be ready to go for off-grid solutions. Water comes from drilled wells, and septic sewer systems are required.

The land rises at a slant from the ocean, and the 10-acre lots are 300 feet above sea level, affording owners views of Meares Island, the Broken Group Islands and Barkley Sound, he said.

“We’re developing it over time, and we hope the good people of the West Coast will find it an intriguing opportunity,” he said.

Martin said they recently dropped prices 30 percent to spark some activity, with prices ranging from $125,000 to $300,000 for a view lot.
