On February 1, 2021, several significant amendments to the Environmental Management Act, SBC 2003, c 53 (the “Act”) came into force and which resulted in a substantial overhaul of the Contaminated Sites Regulation, BC Reg 375/96 (the “CSR”). These changes reflect the efforts of the Province to streamline and clarify the process for addressing contaminated sites while addressing purported weaknesses within the previous regime through a mandatory investigation process for contaminated sites.
With these amendments come a number of changes to the Act and applicable regulations that will impact application for subdivision, zoning, or a development or building permit with the Regional District.
