The BC Supreme Court has released its decision in Greater Vancouver Regional District v Langley, TWU and Wall. The decision has significant implications for private sector developments confronted with assertions by a Regional District related to the implications of its Regional Growth Strategy for development applications.
The decision arose from a challenge by the Greater Vancouver Regional District ("GVRD") to an Official Community Plan Bylaw ("OCP") amendment bylaw enacted by the Township of Langley, further to applications by Trinity Western University and a private sector land owner. We were counsel for the private sector applicant in the case.
If you require legal advice regarding the potential implications of a Regional Growth Strategy for circumstances you may be facing, feel free to give us a call.
