Open House Site Alteration Bylaw

May 11 2022
Updated: May 11 2022

Do you own property on Bowen Island and plan to do any blasting or other land clearing?

Are you thinking about purchasing property to develop?

We want to know what you think about a new bylaw to regulate site alteration across Bowen Island - specifically the removal or deposit of soil and the clearing of land.

We’re starting work on a new Site Alteration Bylaw that would establish different levels of permits required for site alteration, with escalating permit fees and application requirements based on the extent of site alteration proposed. The bylaw would also exempt site alteration activities below a set threshold.

This is your chance to get involved in the development of new regulations on site alteration that may affect you, your neighbours and future developers. We’re holding public open houses in May so you can get all of the information about the proposed regulations, ask questions, and provide your feedback. Your input helps us form fair and reasonable policies that recognize the rights and responsibilities of property owners while protecting the natural environment.
