People who are looking to relocate to the Greater Victoria Area would be wise to take a good look at Langford. Changes in this community over the last decade or so have brought Langford out of the doldrums. Traffic woes have been smartly addressed, leading to easier access to Victoria and other western communities. Affordable land values and an amenable local government have led to a surge of development, both business and residential.
Almost anything a person or family needs can be found in or near Langford. There are several new retail centres offering all sorts of shopping – in fact Langford has become something of a shopping destination for the other western shore municipalities. No longer do people need to travel to Victoria to find what they need!
Residential development has kept pace as well; there are a number of projects underway or completed offering options that range from condos, townhomes, to multi-family and single family residences. One of the exciting things happening here is development geared toward sustainability, built to new environmentally sensitive standards and promoting social equity. As many people are now more thoughtful about how they live and how their lifestyle impacts our planet, it’s nice to see these principles being addressed at this level.
Langford is a community brimming with potential, blessed with a temperate climate, in one of the most beautiful regions of Canada. People who want to live where new development is encouraged to embrace an environmentally sustainable focus, and where social equity is a goal, will be happy here.
