Wednesday, March 31, 2021

What is Lakes Zoning Amendment Bylaw Number 900-28 (BL900-28)?

The subject property, 673 Swanbeach Road, is located in Swansea Point in Electoral Area E and is legally describe as Lot 1, Section 11, Township 21, Range 8, West of the 6th Meridian, Kamloops Division Yale District, Plan 11368. The property is particularly shown on the location map below:

March 31, 2021 BL900-28 Location

The applicants have applied to amend Lakes Zoning Bylaw Number 900 to recognize the existing fixed dock associated with 673 Swanbeach Road. Fixed docks are not permitted in the Foreshore Residential (FR1) Zone. This dock is not currently sited in compliance with the required setbacks and has a larger upward surface area and wider walkway width than what is permitted in the FR1 Zone.

Waiving of Public Hearing

Section 464(2) of the Local Government Act provides an option for local governments to waive the holding of a public hearing with respect to a bylaw amendment, if there is an Official Community Plan (OCP) in effect for the area that is subject to the zoning bylaw, and the proposed bylaw amendment is consistent with the OCP. This area currently does not have an OCP, however in this instance the existing Electoral Area E Rural Land Use Bylaw Number 2000 is considered as similar to an OCP inclusive of its land use policies.

The public hearing for this bylaw amendment was waived by the CSRD Board at the December 10, 2020 Board Meeting, as the proposal is consistent with the policies in Bylaw Number 2000.

In accordance with Section 8.1.1 of Development Services Procedures Bylaw Number 4001, all owners of property within 100 m of the subject property must be sent notices advising that a public hearing has been waived and be given the opportunity to provide comment about the bylaw amendment
