Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
Protecting development in hazardous areas
The presence of steep slopes, creeks, ravines, floodplains and forested lands — combined with occasional extreme weather activity — make some areas of the District susceptible to natural hazards including landslide, debris flow, flood and wildfire.
Our objective is to reduce and mitigate the risk associated with natural hazards.
Development in areas prone to natural hazards requires special consideration due to concerns for personal safety and risk of property damage as well as potential impacts to natural environments.
We have developed a series Development Permit Areas (DPAs) where special requirements and guidelines for any development or alteration of the land are in effect.
