Survey Seeks Input on Changes to Subdivision Servicing Bylaw

Sorrento Subdivision on Lake

Monday, October 25, 2021

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is currently reviewing and updating its Subdivision Servicing Bylaw and is looking for input on the proposed changes from professionals working in the subdivision industry and interested members of the public.

An online Subdivision Servicing Bylaw survey has been developed to gather information and can be found on the CSRD Connect page of the CSRD's website.

The CSRD encourages anyone with an interest in the rural subdivision process to complete the survey, which will be open until November 22, 2021.

Subdivision is the process of legally altering parcel boundaries. It usually involves the dividing of a parcel of land into smaller lots. It can also include a boundary adjustment, or the consolidation of two or more lots into a single parcel.

The purpose of a subdivision servicing bylaw is to ensure that all new parcels created through subdivision are both safe and sustainable. Safe means that the parcel is provided with potable drinking water, has adequate area for sewage disposal, safe access driveways and safe building areas. Sustainable in this context means that there is a sufficient volume of water now and in the future, and adequate area to support a future back up sewage disposal area or connections to community water and sewer systems.

The preferred method of hearing your comments is through the survey, however, you may also email your comments, or mail them to:

CSRD c/o Christine LeFloch, Planner III
555 Harbourfront Drive NE
P.O. Box 978
Salmon Arm BC V1E 4P1

Written submissions are public information and will be made available to Directors of the CSRD Board for their information.
