Approval of development over the Goat River trail and near the Goat River
This investigation examines a complaint by the Fraser Headwaters Alliance (the complainant) about whether operational plans prepared by Zeidler Forest Industries Limited (the licensee) met the requirements of the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act and its regulations (the Code). McBride Forest Industries Ltd. now holds the licence. The complaint involves two issues:
Was approval of a road next to the Goat River, a fish-bearing stream, appropriate and consistent with the Forest Practices Code?
Was approval of a cutblock over and near a trail used for recreation appropriate and consistent with the Forest Practices Code?
