No reason Duncan Manor can’t move
Duncan Manor management (and local government):
Why are you making a simple procedure so complicated? Surely there is land available in the area large enough to hold the Manor’s entire operation (including buildings and parking)! Buy the land, build your bulding(s) and move into it! Then tear down old facility and sell land. That simple! Deal to sell land can be made prior to or in tandem with other negotiations. It does not have to be all that complicated and does not have to upset scores of local residents and park users, as well as your own residents! There is no reason for you to have to stay in the same location.
It’s not fair to ask/expect a significant city park to give up part of its land to satisfy your need for parking — or to provide space for part of your new building!
This is the most unprofessional and inconsiderate plan I have ever heard of. Cowichan is not short of land!
