“There is ample evidence before me that the bylaw (Rhodo) was considered by Council appropriately and is valid”

 

The judge upheld the zoning bylaw and dismissed the lawsuit in its entirety today. 

 

We are moving forward into building permits and construction  :banana:

It would be the standard outcome, yes.

True but not necessarily fully accurate. The court has limits on recoverable legal fees and what they assess is often only about a 1/3 to 1/2 of what a party may have actually spent on legal fees.

The Supreme Court, though? I’m pretty certain the costs will be covered by the party that loses.

In my experience the legal costs that are recoverable have been a fraction of what I actually spent on lawyers.

Perhaps PPPDev can confirm if they actually got 100% cost recovery? As I said, I have never seen this happen as the costs that are recoverable are generally at the discretion of the court and in most cases well below what was actually spent by the prevailing party. This is especially true in cases where the loosing party can claim they represent the public good as this plaintiff attempted to argue.

Just watched one of the homes from this property go down Fairfield Rd. That takes a whole other skill of driving!

 

Anyone know where these houses are going? Think there are 3 of them.

Two houses, taken in 3 parts. One is going to Lopez Island, the other to Saltspring. The driver was super talented eh? Some of those pinch points were millimeters!
