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.
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.
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.
