Covering his tracks, having a tantrum, lost? Maybe should've had a water truck behind him. Still bringing in lots of fill on those low lying flood plain lots. Keep wondering if the elevation is going to be brought up to the level of those white pipes protruding on the water side of the sidewalks. That... Continue Reading →
CVRD approves over $2.8M in growing community grant funds.
Just heard a clip on the radio that the Union Bay Firehall faces some issues. Guess what they are - ole slick was supposed to provide a SERVICED lot for the fire hall. It's still not at this time even though this was agreed to in the 2017 Water Agreement with KIP - page 7... Continue Reading →
Union Bay Nature Park – only took 13 years for KIP aka Union Bay Estates to turn over part of parks.
Not sure if the land to the east of the highway has been turned over to the CVRD as it's still listed as 'private', but the land to the west of the highway is now officially the property of the CVRD as it's listed as municipal. Note the walkway along the ocean and Washer Creek... Continue Reading →

Why doesn’t Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates have a permit for work behind Washer Rd?
Kip has been working behind Washer Rd. for a number of weeks and yet there is nothing on the CVRD website indicating work has been approved for this specific area. Image below is from CVRD https://www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/projects-initiatives/past-current-projects/union-bay-estates and each development permit refers to specific areas. Maybe KIP changed the location of the wastewater treatment plant. Here's... Continue Reading →
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates – CVRD rules don’t seem to apply compared to couple out over $80,000.
Why do developers like Kensington Island Properties and businesses like Deep Water Recovery Ship Breaking get away with no permits and never pay a price? I've been asking the CVRD if KIP had a permit or authorization to construct a path along the oceanfront since Jan. 11, 2023 and they still can't answer - all... Continue Reading →
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates – path and gravel pit
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Feb. 5, 2023
No machinery near the pathway the CVRD hasn't been able to confirm if KIP had permission to work on the shoreline. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2023/01/26/cvrd-doesnt-appear-to-have-a-clear-understanding-on-kips-shoreline-work/ https://youtu.be/iMPRSbAZZdo This video is from Nov. 15, 2021 of the same area. Notice the water reaching the trees where KIP has constructed the path? This wasn't at the highest tides. https://youtu.be/pV4JV6WhjwE
CVRD doesn’t appear to have a clear understanding on KIP’s shoreline work.
This is a follow up on this post asking if KIP had a permit to work so close to the ocean, constructing a pathway. http://kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-working-on-the-waterfront Did ole slick pull another fast one by constructing a pathway along the perimeter of his oceanfront and fish bearing creek front without a development permit? This is KIP's MO... Continue Reading →
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates – list of CVRD conditions. Any of them completed since July 2020?
Waiting for word back from the CVRD as to how many of the conditions have been met to date. UPDATE: Received the following from the CVRD: #3 are those 9 lots where KIP is hauling truckloads to raise the area in the floodplain? Did KIP obtain the Development Permit to build a walkway right on... Continue Reading →

Is that a path/walkway along the perimeter? Does work this close to the shoreline require a permit? https://youtu.be/O2Qb-hTNU3E
