Cypress Land Services Inc. (TELUS)
Referral application that proposes to construct a new 22.0 metre tower with a 4-foot microwave dish at Pilkey Point Road, Thetis Island. The Local Trust Committee (LTC) is not the approving authority for telecommunication antenna structures. Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (previously Industry Canada) is the approving authority for the development and operation of radiocommunication in Canada, including telecommunication antenna structures, pursuant to the Radiocommunication Act.
As part of the application process, the LTC and the public must be consulted for input regarding the proposed placement of a telecommunication antenna structure. The LTC performs three main functions for the public consultation. These are:
- to scrutinize the consultation process
- to clarify and communicate land use policies in relation to antenna structures
- to concur on the proposal regarding land use planning and siting
For more information about the proposal and how to submit comments to the proponent, click on the application number above.
In cases where an LTC would not support a proposal, it cannot prevent a proponent from ultimately gaining permission from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada to install a telecommunication antenna structure.
For additional information regarding the wireless telecommunications process, please see consult Client Procedures Circular CPC-2-0-03 and Facts about Towers.
