RIPARIAN AREAS RAR Salt Spring Island DPA 7
This is the second go around for this land use bylaw. The first time it was proposed as an island wide bylaw covering most of the watersheds. There was a massive push back from the residents of Salt Spring. This time around the Island Trust has mapped all of the steams/creaks/lakes.
Here is the map that of the island with the new DPA 7 (Development Permit Area) on it. map-28-proposed-rar-map If a home you are looking at is in the area there will be no impact until you want to do something ie renovate or add on. At that point you would need to follow the proposed new bylaw; ss-bl-480-2nd-reading
I think this is a workable and good bylaw that will protect the stream, creeks and lakes on Salt Spring.
