Last week, Delta Council endorsed applications from a pair of local farm operations that would see a total of 44 new migrant workers in the community.

Now forwarded to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) for approval, an application by the Windset Farms greenhouse operation on 41B Street would see the removal of one of the existing modular temporary migrant farm worker housing units on the property and replaced with a new two-story modular building to accommodate 64 migrant farm workers.

The total number of migrant farm workers on the property would see a net increase of 32, from 96 to 128.

The proposed additional migrant farm worker housing is 4,241 square feet in net floor area and would increase the total net floor area of migrant farm worker housing on the property to 12,281 square feet.
