A Supreme Court decision that the City of Victoria was within its rights not to issue a developer building permits for three houses in a five-lot Fairfield subdivision has been upheld by the B.C. Court of Appeal.
Developer Terrence Bradshaw bought a Pakington Street property in 2008 with the intention of subdividing it into five lots and building a single family house on each of the lots. Two of the lots were to be accessed from Pakington and three from a back lane that has since been named Harling Lane, according to a just released appeals court decision.
At the time Bradshaw began the subdivision process, the city’s Official Community Plan did not require development permits in that area of the city.
