The District Of Sechelt is giving the green light to the Upper Deck Guesthouse to become a homeless shelter.
Council were unanimously in favour of adopting the amended bylaw and the former hostel will now be able to open their doors before Christmas, which was a goal of theirs.
Councillors said that the decision was a feel-good moment for them and they thanked their staff for moving the application through in a timely manner.
The third reading of an amended bylaw for the RTC properties development also got the thumbs up.
The vote was 4-2 as Councillor Darnelda Siegers and Doug Wright was not in favour of changing the development from 31 units to 20 units.
The application will go to the ministry of transportation for approval before it can proceed.
