Westhills Land Corp. is asking Langford council for several zoning changes and updates to its master plan, including a new parkland agreement that proposes playing fields, traffic berms and parking areas all be considered open spaces.
But it looks like they want it to be calculated as part of its open spaces. I don’t see it described as parkland:
“Westhills is now proposing that playing fields, trails, stream-side areas, engineered fill slopes, public plazas and untouched green space be included in a new parkland deal. It is also proposing that the parking areas adjacent to the E&N railway and YMCA count toward the 40%.”
I’m guessing they were using the term open spaces as another word for parklands? Either way, the above sentence notes that they want to include the traffic berms as parkland.
No good reason Langford has to grant them the changes. No big deal.

Did you try reading the agreement title? You won't have to go far lol...
PARKLAND DEDICATION AGREEMENT (PDA)
The PDA sets out the parameters of what kinds of parcels of land will or will not be considered Park, when dedication needs to occur, and how the areas are to be protected or improved upon. It is proposed that the 40% land dedication could include playing fields, trails, Streamside Protection Enhancement Areas, engineered fill slopes, public plazas, untouched greenspace, among others. It is also proposed that the Park & Ride area adjacent to the E&N railway and YMCA count towards the 40% subject to it remaining available for public use.
