Concord has won its bid to join with the City of Vancouver in opposing the community’s petition for judicial review of the City’s decision to allow commercial enterprises on land zoned exclusively for park and recreation.
The City supported Concord’s bid. No surprise there.
The FCRA is now up against both the City and the developer. But of more concern is the fact that we anticipate that Concord will hijack the process with endless applications and motions. Delay delay delay.
Certainly the City will be pleased NOT to have a decision on the substance of our petition before the November municipal election.
And the longer the delay, the more money Concord makes. At this point, the City has granted them a filming permit – a 9 week affair which will also close the seawall for significant periods of time.
The full decision allowing Concord to join the action is below:
