Gibsons council is totally “out of sink” with the correlation between development and an adequate water supply.
Regarding our current situation (water restrictions) and a council that considers community planning secondary to a need for more development (subdivisions, condominiums, hotels) to increase a tax base, they have little consideration for the entire community, who must suffer the consequences of bad planning and poor management.
A “given” would be to establish a moratorium on all development until the “saturation point” between dwellings and water supply is studied and established before going any further.
There is a total lack of foresight by Gibsons Council and they cannot claim they could not see this coming.
