Marina proposed for Ladysmith waterfront currently under provincial review

Ministry fielding public comments on Victoria-based Canadian Pacific Property Development Ltd's Slack Point project until May 2

The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) is fielding comments on a marina development proposed for the Slack Point area.

Canadian Pacific Property Development (CPPD) Ltd. of Victoria filed applications for a “lease for a commercial marina” and a “crown grant for Commercial A” in March. The application lists lots 16, 17G and 651 (Slack Point, the shore lot to its northwest and the adjacent water lot known locally as “the Dog Patch”) as the location of the proposed development.

The ministry will receive comments on the proposal until May 2, rather than April 11, as stated on the ministry’s website. (The earlier date is an error, said Myles Mana, MFLNRO’s regional director of resource authorization.)  Comments can be submitted online at http://arfd.gov.bc.ca/ApplicationPosting/viewpost.jsp?PostID=38625 or by mail. Hardcopy commentary should be directed to the Section Head, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, 142-2080 Labieux Rd., Nanaimo, B.C., V9T 6J9.

Mana said the ministry attempts to hand down decisions on smaller projects within 140 days, but larger projects like this one often involve lengthier deliberations.

The proposal incorporates an outer marina located in what is now the Dog Patch and an inner marina sheltered within a dredged out Slack Point — a concept rendered by Victoria-based architect Herbert H. Kwan.

Daniel Maloney, owner of M & A Professional Services in Vancouver, was named by Kwon as the developer behind CPPD Ltd. Maloney did not return the Chronicle’s calls by press time.
