Many of you will have already seen this as it has been bouncing around the agriculture online community; but better safe than sorry, I say.

The Ministry of Agriculture is developing a draft Minister’s bylaw standard for residential uses in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). It is intended to provide criteria to local governments across the Province as they develop their own bylaws.

The link below will take you to a Discussion Paper containing the bylaw standard for residential uses in the ALR, proposed by the Ministry of Agriculture. The associated survey asks questions specific to the Discussion Paper.

The comment period on the Discussion Paper closes at midnight, Pacific Time, July 14, 2011.

I strongly encourage Saanich residents to review the paper and tell the Government what you think of their proposed bylaw standard.
