Works & Services Bylaw Amendment

On March 30th, 2022, pursuant to Section 12 of the University Endowment Land Act, the Minister of Municipal Affairs amended and enacted the following bylaws:

UEL Fees Bylaw

  • Updated fee structure to replace fees previously found in the Land Use, Building and Community Administration Bylaw and the Works & Services Bylaw

Land Use, Building and Community Administration Bylaw

  • Amended the Bylaw to reference the UEL Fees Bylaw
  • Repealed subsections (1) through (11); (12)(a) through (12)(c), and (14) of Schedule 2

Works & Services Bylaw

The bylaws are available for review at the UEL Administration Office from Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and available online here.

BACKGROUND

The UEL fees were set out in Schedule 2 of the UEL Land Use, Building and Community Administration Bylaw (LUB) and Schedule A of the Works and Services Bylaw, as authorized under s. 12(1)(f) of the UEL Act. The UEL’s existing fee structure has not been substantially updated since 1989. The new UEL Fees Bylaw includes an updated fee structure that consolidates fees into a single bylaw for improved clarity and function.

The bylaw amendments amend the UEL Land Use, Building and Community Administration Bylaw and the UEL Works and Services Bylaw, and enact the UEL Fees Bylaw

Official Community Plan Amendments

Pursuant to Section 12 of the University Endowment Land Act, the Minister of Municipal Affairs amended the UEL Official Community Plan to:

  • Implement the Area D Neighbourhood Plan (Ministerial Order M164 signed April 6, 2021); and
  • Create a Community Centre Advisory Board that will have input into operations of the future UEL community centre. (Ministerial Order M523 signed December 10, 2021)

BACKGROUND

In 2016, bylaws were created for the leləm development (Block F) that require the Musqueam Capital Corporation (MCC) to build a community centre and turn it over to the Province to operate for the benefit of UEL residents. In 2018, MCC proposed an additional funding source for the community centre in the form of guaranteed community centre memberships from leləm strata residents in exchange for them having input into the operations of the community centre through seats on an advisory board. The bylaw amendment amends the UEL Official Community Plan to establish this advisory board.

More information on the Area D Neighbourhood Plan can be found here.
