RD to appeal Supreme Court ruling

The regional district plans to appeal a BC Supreme Court decision to consider 3L Developments’ application to amend the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) — which has been a sticking point in discussions with the company.

“The board respects the decision made by the judge (Emily Burke) of the BC Supreme Court, but does do not agree with it,” CVRD board chair Bruce Jolliffe said in a statement. “Until the outcome of that appeal, the board will have no further comment, as the matter will be before the courts.”

Last year, the previous board voted to not initiate an amendment to the RGS bylaw. 3L’s lawyers suggested the CVRD was not following procedures set out in the Local Government Act and in the RGS, a document that guides growth and development in the Valley.

The Nanaimo-based company hopes to build homes and construct trails near Stotan Falls.
