On January 20, 2022 the Electoral Area E Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 840 received Third Reading by the CSRD Board.
Bylaw No. 840 will replace land use policies for areas currently covered by Rural Sicamous Land Use Bylaw No. 2000 and will introduce new polices for the remainder of the Electoral Area. Bylaw No. 840 will also introduce several Development Permit Areas which will be applicable to the entire Electoral Area. Policies contained in the Plan advance the goals of the CSRD 2019-2022 Strategic Plan and BC Climate Action Charter commitments. Bylaw No. 840 has been prepared concurrently with a new Zoning Bylaw for Electoral Area E (Bylaw No. 841).
