In danger due to red tape?

Re: Big Homes issue still looms large for Surrey.

So the lobbyist group (SRA), by presenting a signed petition with 4,000 signatures, did not influence the shelving of legal action against illegally constructed additions in 70 homes? Or that council members were not pressured to put legal action against these homes into abeyance?

As a homeowner who actually paid for and was inspected on a construction job to our home I wonder, is it too late to get my money back?

These homes, that I assume are occupied, may or may not comply with the B.C. Building Code, according to city manager Murray Dinwoodie, and a red tape committee will establish what the zoning should be.

Is that not already in place?

Let’s hope that someone’s health and well-being aren’t at risk during all the further analysis.
