Westminster Canterbury Expansion-Stop City Council

Virginia Beach City Council has approved plans to allow a 22 story building expansion of Westminster Canterbury. This will create  a structure rivaling Town Center and potentially supporting other high rise development in the Bayfront neighborhoods along Shore Drive.  This precedent setting decision was based solely on the opinions of 5 Council Members and not based on quantifiable City codes or requirements. 

If this decision is allowed to stand, it could set a precedent for City Council to ignore zoning regulations in any neighborhood in any part of the city.  City Council ignored density requirements of the Shore Drive Corridor Overlay District Plan; adverse neighborhood impact prohibited in the Comprehensive Plan and maximum height restrictions in the Zoning Code for the B-4 district when it approved the huge Westminster Canterbury expansion plan. 

This could happen in any neighborhood in the city.  Let’s protect our neighborhoods from arbitrary and capricious City Council decisions. 

The money raised will be going to legal fees to fight this overreach of the Virginia Beach city council.
