Improvement Districts are brought into existence by the provincial government through Cabinet Orders which authorized the passage of a document known as Letters Patent.
BRAITHWAITE ESTATES IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT (BEID), is a waterworks provider incorporated by its Letters Patent issued on February 5, 1976.
The Letters Patent contains a description of the BEID boundary and the services it provides to the residents within that boundary.
BEID provides potable water to approximately 259 active service connections in Cobble Hill, British Columbia (as at March 2020). In addition, service will be required for approximately 11 undeveloped lots currently located within the BEID boundaries. Any future service connection applications, subdivision applications or boundary expansion petitions will be considered pursuant to legislation, BEID bylaws, and on the basis of infrastructure capacity.
