ALC rejects Balmoral Land Exclusion

Thursday, November 22, 2018

The Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) has refused an application to exclude a 49-hectare parcel of land at the corner of the Trans-Canada Highway and Balmoral Road in Blind Bay.

The CSRD had acted as agent on behalf of the owners, Shuswap Lake Estates Ltd and Shuswap West Property Developments, as the CSRD had intended to purchase 13.6 hectares of the land to develop a community waste water treatment storage pond. The storage and treatment facility was intended to provide spray irrigation to nearby farms as crop fertilizer.

The plan was for the current owners to retain the remainder of the property for a town centre development.
