Support for the Backlands at Regional Council

Yesterday, Regional Council voted 11 to 6 against opening negotations with developers about acquiring the Williams Lake Backlands before completion of Phase I of the Greenbelting and Open Spaces Priorities Plan – the recommendation of Staff that was also supported by ourHRM Allaince and the Backlands Coalition.

We are also encouraged by Clayton Developments’ steadfast interest in pursuing public ownership of our near urban wilderness.
