Deja vu all over again


On February 23, the CRD’s Planning, Transportation and Protective Services Committee struck a subcommittee to prepare to take legal action to prevent any member from “taking independent action” which the CRD deems contrary to the Regional Growth Strategy.

This is aimed at the Central Saanich council which recently approved the Vantreight development within their boundaries.

It is not explicit, but this could also undermine the authority given to Land Use Committee A to govern  such decisions in the Western Communities.

Let’s support our Regional District Director Hicks in making it clear that this intrusion is and will be resisted.
