This report is meant to support the creation of a Hazardous Areas Development Permit Area and a Site Alteration Bylaw for Bowen Island Municipality. The bylaws will address hazards that may be exacerbated by development and are meant to either prevent or mitigate risk of damage to Bowen Island's local ecosystems and community. Best practices are summarized, and geotechnical analyses are used to create a map of potentially hazardous areas.
