Broadmead Real Estate

Broadmead is a unique community which has resulted in exceptional Real Estate appreciation over the past 40 years. The restrictive covenants and local bylaws maintain a high quality community.

Signs

BARA has a standard policy for residential real estate signs in Broadmead.  Real estate agents who list properties for sale in the Broadmead area must obtain signs from Pacific Posts VI.  Pacific Posts can be contacted by e-mail at:

info@pacificpostsvi.com or by telephone at: 250-588-2102

If selling privately, homeowners must obtain ‘For Sale by Owner’ signs from Pacific Posts VI.

All Broadmead properties have statutory building scheme restrictions which limit homes to single-family use only.

Secondary suites are not allowed.

Please e-mail BARA: info@broadmead.ca  for any questions regarding these restrictions.

Garden Suites

 A garden suite is now permitted on most single family residential (RS-zoned) properties inside the Saanich sewer service area.

Garden suites are detached dwellings located in the rear yard of a property with a single-family house as its principal use. A garden suite can only contain one dwelling unit. An owner must live on the property with the garden suite in either the single-family dwelling or the garden suite.

Properties in the Broadmead area have pre-existing statutory building schemes on title that prohibit more than one dwelling unit (for one family or household) on any property. As well, garden suites would only bring increased traffic and street parking issues to an area of Saanich without the necessary supporting infrastructure (including suitable transit).

Saanich Tree Policy

BARA defers to the District of Saanich in all matters concerning the removal of trees. Broadmead, like all of Saanich, is subject to the Saanich tree preservation bylaw recently amended.
