The District of Squamish Council has approved a form and character development permit for some buildings at the Woodfibre LNG (WLNG) facility on Howe Sound. The permit covers approximately five buildings, including the control operations building, warehouse and maintenance building, administration building, storage building, and emergency response building. While the application included renderings of other parts of the facility, the approval focused on these structures. The decision was preceded by a lengthy discussion, with one council member opposing the permit due to concerns about the preliminary nature of the information provided. WLNG may apply for an amendment if there are major changes to these buildings in the future. The approval comes despite ongoing protests against the LNG project.
