Construction of a Logging Road Near Woodward Creek
On June 11, 2007, the Board received a complaint from an individual living near Port Alberni asserting that a woodlot licensee, his neighbour, needlessly built a new logging road instead of using an existing roadway (the Log Train Trail or LTT), damaging forest values in the process.
The Board found that the woodlot licensee had adequately considered using the LTT for its access road, but other considerations such as long term management of the woodlot and recreational use of the trail made it preferable to propose the new road.
