Homeowner rights are endangered in Oak Bay

The deer in Oak Bay are safe. Right now, it’s homeowners who are the endangered species.

You may be living in a nice, quiet, residential area, but do you know what your neighbour is planning? Zoning bylaws may not protect you.

One day, a little sign could appear next door and a large construction is planned. You can protest to council and design panel but your objections may be discounted.

Some councillors may ignore you completely. If that sounds unlikely, it’s exactly what happened to us. It can happen to you. It’s happening all around us.

Beautiful Oak Bay, as we know it, is endangered. Clive Drive is just the tip of the iceberg. Homeowners need to mobilize and get organized before it’s too late. Only they can represent their own interests. It is clear that one can’t rely on other people to do that.
