Lantzville council seeks feedback on soil bylaw

Lantzville council wants to hear from district residents regarding the district’s proposed soil deposit and removal bylaw.

The bylaw is currently waiting for approval from three provincial ministries. In the meantime,  the public is invited to send written feedback about the bylaw before the end of September.

The soil bylaw passed second reading in May. It was created after council decided to abandon the urban agriculture bylaw, which council decide covered too many aspects and was trying to regulate items that were already covered by other jurisdictions such as the provincial agriculture ministry.

Two public information sessions on the soil deposit and removal bylaw are slated for this September, dates to be announced.

The current draft of the soil bylaw is available on the district’s website,

People can provide feedback by e-mailing or writing P.O. Box 100 Lantzville B.C., V0R 2H0.
