B.C. Court Rules Against RV Storage Business

Fri Mar 3, 2017

A local couple who were using their property to store recreational vehicles is in contravention to an RDEK bylaw, ruled a judge in British Columbia Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Clayton and Maureen Augustine, who use their property, located just south of Cranbrook, for an automotive repair business and RV storage, were taken to court by the regional district, who argued that their RV storage was not permitted under the existing Rural Residential (Hobby Farm) zoning, according to a story by the Cranbook Townsman.

The Augustines argued that their RV storage business falls within permitted uses of the property and that a RDEK bylaw officer told them not to worry about the enforcement proceedings.
