The Islands Trust is a federation of independent local governments, which plans land use and regulates development in the trust area. The Lasqueti Local Trust Committee is responsible for Lasqueti and the surrounding small islands.
Each local trust committee has three members - two locally elected trustees, and one Executive Committee member who serves as Chairperson. A local trust committee is responsible for land use planning and regulation for its area of jurisdiction. Its responsibilities include preparation and adoption of official community plans, rural land use bylaws, zoning and subdivision bylaws, regulation of soil removal and deposit, and authorization of permits.
Lasqueti Island is a rural community. Please help us protect its natural beauty and integrity. Tread lightly on our small island. There are no camping sites on Lasqueti. Open fires are restricted. Water shortages can occur in the summer. Dogs running loose are a threat to wild and domestic life, and to themselves. Please control your dogs. The Islands Trust strives to preserve and protect the character and environment of the island. Bylaws do apply.

The Islands Trust Council decided this week not to proceed with a comprehensive review of the Trust Policy Statement. Instead, we will review the Policy Statement in a measured way, as part of our regular business, over the rest of this term of office, addressing topics that we feel are most important.
We also adopted a budget for 2012-13 with no property tax increase.
Details of this, and other topics addressed at the meeting, will be posted on the Islands Trust website.
