Deadline Looming for Public Input on new ESDPA’s in Okanagan Rural Areas

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen has been working with the SOSCP to review and update Official Community Plan bylaws that reduce the impact to the environment during the process of land development. This includes updated mapping and improved policies and guidelines for Environmentally Sensitive Development Permit Areas. RDOS and SOSCP have recently wrapped up public information sessions throughout the South Okanagan, however the public can make comment until January 31, 2016. “An expression of public support for these new provisions is really important”, says Bryn White, SOSCP Program Manager. “There are vast improvements to provisions for the environment and it is important that public have an opportunity to support them.” What is this all about?
