March 2018 | Community Information Meeting and Public Hearing - Proposed Bylaw No. 225

The public is invited to attend a Public Hearing beginning at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at the Denman Activity Centre, 1111 Northwest Road, Denman Island, BC, to hear your views regarding proposed Bylaw No. 225. A Community Information Meeting will be held prior to the Public Hearing.  Bylaw No. 225, if adopted, would amend the Denman Island Land Use Bylaw by adding a general prohibition against the use of vehicles and ground-based machinery in the W1, W3 and W4 zones.  Please note, as fisheries are regulated by the federal government, the bylaw is not intended to restrict aquaculture operators’ access to their license areas.  Click here to go to the meeting calendar and choose the date for more information.  Complete information on the Marine Issues project may be found on the project page.
