Update - November 30, 2018
You may be aware that the property owner has been working on reducing the number of recreational vehicles (RV’s) located throughout the property to bring it in alignment with the zoning bylaw that was approved on June 2, 2016. (Kennedy Lake Recreation Use Areas - Zoning Bylaw 2498 p.107)
The overall count of structures, including RV’s is substantially over what is allowed by zoning. For this reason, a suspension was placed on issuing any building permits, until the number of RV’s had been reduced.
At this point, there are still many RV’s which must be removed, however, the numbers of have been reduced sufficiently enough to allow permit issuance for additions to existing structures or for new accessory structures. No permits will be issued for new cabins or RV shelters until the numbers of RV’s have been reduced in full compliance with the zoning bylaw.
Note that any permit application MUST include an original Authorization to Build signed by the property owner. Authorization to Build form
Update – August 18, 2017
The Kennedy Lake Comprehensive Development (CD6) Zone in the Electoral Area “H” Zoning Bylaw No. 2498, 2012 is limited to a specific number of seasonal cabins and recreational vehicles. The CD6 Zone allows a maximum density of 201 “seasonal cabins” and 154 “recreational vehicles” (for a total of 355) on the property. Recent site inspections completed by Regional District staff determined the total number of “seasonal cabins” and “recreational vehicles” to be in excess of 400. The larger number of these are recreational vehicles – those with RV shelters, without RV shelters and stored RV’s.
The Regional District requires a reduction in the number of “seasonal cabins” and “recreational vehicles” occurring at 1916 Kennedy Lake Road to a number not exceeding 355 prior to issuing any further permits.
Accordingly, new building permits will be not issued for any seasonal cabins or structures associated with recreational vehicles (RV shelters). Building permits may still be considered for accessory buildings (sheds, etc.)
An RFP (Request for Proposals) is currently being prepared to proceed with demolitions of non-compliant structures. Non-compliant structures include structures which permits have expired, have had no inspections or recent inspections or have no permits at all.
