June Klassen, Manager of Planning Services for the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area (JDFEA), has made it easier for people to find out what developments are being considered in their neighbourhoods. At the June JDF Land Use Committee meeting, Ms. Klassen announced that all applications for variances, development permits and subdivisions are now posted at the JDFEA website: http://www.crd.bc.ca/jdf/landuse/current_apps.htm. There are explanations of what permits are required and how to apply. There is also an explanation of why only some development permit applications - those that also require a variance - are published to neighbouring property owners.
If you are more interested in the applications and not the explanations, go directly to:
You will see that the planning office has been really busy this year. Many thanks to the planner for providing this information to the public.
