Letter Opposing Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Retroactive Gravel/Sand Pit Application, Cites Developer’s History

Previous gravel pit posts. https://allthingsunionbay.com/?s=gravel+pit

This is an excerpt of a letter submitted by a landowner opposing KIP’s application and cites another example of how this developer operates by going ahead without permits until getting caught and then counting on being allowed to continue with zero consequences. Don’t forget about turning the 27 contaminated acres back to the province violating the MDA and then claimed KIP was in compliance. Sliimy tactics. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2021/06/02/how-can-kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-be-trusted-after-the-slimy-tactics-to-date/

Here’s the video referred to in this part of the letter. Look at all those steep slopes cleared – never mind within 7.5 metre of a steep slope. This wasn’t an oversight since the developer applied for a steep slope permit for the land northeast of Washer Creek – guess KIP figured they wouldn’t get away with it there. Slimy tactics.

It’s not like KIP didn’t know a steep slope permit would be required. Here’s the one applied for and posted on the CVRD website. https://www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/projects-initiatives/past-current-projects/union-bay-estates

This is also regarding the Argyle clearing. Remember this quote which turned out to be more bullshit as they went ahead and burned all those piles without the commitmenthttps://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/opinion/kensington-countering-rumour-mill/#disqus_thread

Before we do anything you have my commitment that we will let you know how and when we will dispose of the debris before we do it. Brian McMahon, Comox Valley Record letter to the editor Sept. 27, 2011

From the same letter to the editor claiming no one complained before – ya, people probably thought a developer wouldn’t do things without a permit – now we know this developer needs to be watched very closely as permits appear to be optional. Any steep slope permits applied for?

Since 2007, KIP has been clearing land within the development. Every step of the way this debris has been burned under permit and a watchful eye. To date, not one complaint has ever been lodged with any level of government.
