Five recommendations at regional district

  • Aug. 19, 2013 8:00 p.m.

Regional district directors made five recommendations when they met Aug. 9 regarding two applications by Queen Charlotte-based Van Inlet Hydro Corp. for crown land licences of occupation. The investigative permit applications cover a site at the head of Van Inlet, near Clapp Basin, which would be used for power generation, and land for a transmission line that would run from Clapp Basin to Port Clements. Van Inlet Hydro is proposing investigative works to take place over the next five years, with the goal of building a dam and associated infrastructure to generate water power, and a transmission line to carry the power to Port. Regional district directors endorsed five recommendations in response to the applications. The recommendations include that Van Inlet undertake comprehensive environmental studies for the area; that Van Inlet take into account the province’s guidelines for streamside protection; and that Van Inlet be requested to confirm requirements for authorization under the Utilities Commission Act and requirements for approval of the Agricultural Land Commission.
