The B.C. government struck down development bylaws on timberlands owned by Western Forest Products just outside of Victoria, BC.
According to a recent report by Canadian Press, the Capital Regional District passed a total of six bylaws last year after the provincial government let go thousands of hectares of WFP land from its tree-farm license. In a turn of events, the court nixed the bylaws, declaring the district’s board was mistaken when it assessed who is able to vote on land-use bylaws in the electoral area of Juan de Fuca, CP reported.
Western Forest Products has conditional sales agreements with several developers, and has taken the district to court, CP confirmed.
