    David G. Saltman and A. Evelyn Postgate, Third Parties


    Decision Date: July 18, 2002

    Panel: Alan Andison

    Keywords: Water Act – s.40(7); stay application

    The Appellants each appealed a conditional water licence (the “Licence”) issued by the Regional Water Manager to the Third Parties. The Appellants requested a stay of the Licence pending decisions on the merits of their appeals.

    The Board was not satisfied that the Appellants would suffer irreparable harm if a stay was denied.

    In addition, the Board found that the Third Parties would incur significant costs and inconvenience if a stay was granted. Therefore, the Board found that balance of convenience favoured denying a stay.

    The application for a stay was denied.
