Deep Cove property chock-full of junk
The District of North Vancouver has told the owners of a Deep Cove property chock-full of junk: Clean up your property or we’ll do it for you and bill you for the trouble.
The property at 2755 Panorama Dr., owned by Charles (Chuck) and Constance Band, has been the subject of numerous complaints over the last 20 years because of debris strewn about the area, yard cars, and heaps of construction materials and derelict industrial equipment.
The home has also undergone renovations without building or development permits, adding to the concerns of neighbours.
Neighbour and geologist Kristian Whitehead said the junk has prevented him from completing the survey work necessary to put in a new retaining wall on his own steep property, as the current one is badly in need of replacement.
“The big thing with this particular property is that risk has pronounced over time and we can’t wait any longer for the things that are occurring,” he said. “So as of today I am unable to go forward with the replacement of my wall. I have significant risk to the property and environment.”
