The Appellants appealed the Assistant Regional Waste Manager’s issuance of an approval to the Greater Vancouver Regional District (the “GVRD”). The approval allowed the GVRD to deposit biosolids on parts of the Ashcroft Ranch. The Appellants appealed on the basis that the use of the biosolids caused offensive odours that adversely affected their business.
The Board found that the Appellants had neither suffered any losses nor were otherwise damaged by the biosolids of the Ashcroft ranch to date.
The Board confirmed the approval, subject to several minor amendments. Accordingly, the appeal was allowed, in part.
