An amended Temporary Use Permit for the RV campground at the Paradise Resort could see it accommodate year-round use for sled trailers during the winter, with the usual camping in summer, with council approval. (DOS photo)

A Temporary Use Permit (TUP) first granted to Paradise Resort last November is back before the Sicamous (B.C.) district, according to the Eagle Valley News.

The property owner originally applied for the TUP to add a 15-site, serviced campground at the motel located at 517 Main Street. They are now looking for a revised TUP that better suits their needs.

In a report prepared for the Nov. 15 district committee of the whole meeting, planner Sarah Martin outlined the requested amendments, which included providing sewer service, an extended shoulder season and allowing parking for trucks and sled trailers on the larger sites during the winter for year-round use.

The TUP originally included limiting guest stays to a maximum of two weeks, but the owner now wants to eliminate that, though some committee members expressed concerns about it becoming long-term accommodation.

Alliance Consulting’s Rob Couch, speaking on behalf of property owner Sicamous Investments, assured them that wouldn’t happen as the money is in short-term rentals, with this just providing some flexibility with sled trailers in the off-season.
