SCRD postpones bylaw amendments around shoreline protection 

The Sunshine Coast Regional District says they’ve postponed changing a bylaw around zoning to allow for public input.  

According to the district, a public hearing was originally supposed to be held on Monday Jun 24., to allow residents to ask questions around a bylaw that shapes shoreline protection and protecting sensitive ecological areas, but it has been delayed due to the number of inquiries. 

The amendments are being proposed to provide measures to immediately strengthen protection of watercourses and shorelines within the district. 

In an email, manager of communications and engagement Aidan Buckley says the SCRD is looking forward to hearing from the public before moving forward with the amendments. 

“The SCRD will host a public information meeting prior to the rescheduled public hearing,” he says. “This will ensure that these questions can be answered before the public hearing takes place.”
