The CVRD has received updated and refined landslide hazard assessments for the slopes above the Youbou area which add supplemental informatio to the previous risk assessment reports prepared in 2019. Based on new high resolution mapping collected in 2019, landslide risks and runout models have been developed which model the extent of potential landslides in the area.
The CVRD has a Risk Tolerance Policy to guide land use and development decisions in areas where hazards may present a risk the life and safety of residents. In areas subject to hazards such as landslides, you may be required to hire an engineer or geoscientist to prepare a geohazard risk assessment for your property prior to any development. The policy is available here.
