Wasa and Area Planning Projects 2017/2018

The Regional District is proposing to include two new Development Permit Areas in the Wasa and Area Official Community Plan and to permit detached secondary suites within the Electoral Area E Zoning Bylaw.


An Open House was held on Wednesday, July 26th at the Wasa Community Hall with a great turnout, approximately 70 people were in attendance!  The Open House began with residents having the opportunity to view the proposed bylaw amendments and map schedules, followed by a staff presentation and question and answer period.
The comment period is open until Friday, September 29th.  A link to the comment form is available or if you prefer, feedback can also be provided via email, telephone or a meeting with RDEK staff.

The 3 bylaws will be presented to the RDEK Board of Directors at the January 5th meeting.  The Board can choose to give the bylaws 1st and 2nd reading and authorize a public hearing or defeat the bylaws.  If a public hearing is authorized it will be held later in the month of January. 

A Public Hearing is a formal meeting held for the purpose of allowing the public an opportunity to voice their support or opposition to the bylaws, in person at the public hearing or by written submission.  Once the public hearing concludes, no further information or submissions can be considered by the RDEK Board. The public hearing will be advertised in local newspapers as well as on our website Public Hearings & Meeting page.
