The City of Surrey said bylaw officers were back again Wednesday morning, along with RCMP and City of Surrey building and electrical inspectors because of the “multiple illegal tents set up at the back of the property.”

The city issued a stop work order to the property owner for not obtaining permits for the large tents, the city said.

The owner was also issued compliance orders due to concerns over the electrical setup.

According to the city, RCMP are considering issuing fines for violations of the public health order regarding COVID-19.

In addition, bylaw officers will be issuing fines for zoning and building infractions, the city said in its statement.
