Temporary Use Permit Applications
The Regional Board has given conditional approval to three separate Temporary Use permits on three properties within the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.
The first application would see temporary living units established for 24 workers on a 4.01-hectare farm adjacent to Black Road.
The second application proposes temporary accommodation for 18 migrant farm workers on a 7.28-hectare property adjacent to Old Vernon Road and Scotty Creek Road.
The third application is from a proponent that wishes to establish an outdoor, recreational ropes course and zip line business on an 8-hectare portion of a 129.5-hectare property at 4675 June Springs Road.
In each case, Board support for the Temporary Use Permits is contingent on the applicants meeting a number of conditions identified by the Community Services department.
