North Cowichan will Appeal BC Supreme Court Decision Regarding Local Motorsport Circuit

(North Cowichan, BC) – On November 6, 2020, the British Columbia Supreme Court ordered that Council reconsider its decision to deny the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit (VIMC) a development permit for its proposed Phase Two expansion.

The Court concluded that Council’s denial of the Development Permit Application was unreasonable as Council did not explain its departure from the previous determination made by the Municipality that the use complied with the Zoning Bylaw when it issued the Development Permit for Phase One of the VIMC facility.

North Cowichan has 30 days from the date of the Court’s decision to bring an appeal. Council has now instructed North Cowichan’s legal counsel to bring an appeal from the Court’s decision.
