Answers from CVRD Regarding Sewage Grant Application, Union Bay Estates aka Kensington Island Properties Sewage Application and Gravel/sand Pit Application

I think we are screwed.

What criteria is used to approve the developer to use a specific area of the over 700 acres of land as a gravel pit?

Does the CVRD have a say in the location of the Gravel/Sand pit?

Update on the Sewage Grant application for Union Bay and Royston.

Does Kensington Island Properties sewage application to dump treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek meet the conditions in the MDA?

Is the CVRD willing to own a system that dumps treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek as set out in the MDA?

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

DP 11A 19 is the area pictured below.

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.

Ole Slick Found More Rubes – Protest Against Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Retroactive Gravel/Sand Pit Application Canceled

I hope Richard was not contacted by KIP spokesperson, David Godfrey on the developer’s behalf.

Union Bay – a community of marks willing to drink the kool aid served up by Kensington Island Properties, year after year.

The protest has been canceled due to a favourable response from the developer. WTF does that mean? Is the ‘favourable response’ top secret? Did this ‘favourable response’ include why this developer went ahead a year ago without any permits? Is that a developer that can be trusted?

Why is the developer hiding from the press? Why is the developer hiding from the landowners of Union Bay?

Is this ‘favourable response’ in writing? This developer has said a hell of a lot in the last 20 years that turned out to be absolute bullshit.

You can’t fix stupid.

Here’s what was posted. Richard: are you aware the developer cleared all those acres and extracted 3000 to 5000 tonnes without a permit? The developer still hasn’t applied for clearing that very property. What about those steep slopes? This is a developer that doesn’t care about you, or any of us because this developer would not have bothered applying at all if it hadn’t been for someone asking if there was a permit issued. Why did the developer only contact you when he has been hiding from the press?

Why can’t this developer ever face the community and also allow recording of the questions and answers? Gutless wonder.
