Squamish Lillooet Regional District
To the north, east and west of Pemberton, you will find a vast territory dotted with lakes, cabins, homes and acreages. These residential and recreational getaways provide a tranquil setting surrounded by nature.
The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District is a quasi-municipal administrative area in British Columbia. It stretches from Britannia Beach in the south to Pavilion in the north. Lillooet, Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish are the four municipalities in the regional district, with its administrative offices in the Village of Pemberton.
The SLRD areas referred to here are those areas that lie outside of the Village of Pemberton, The Resort Municipality of Whistler, and the District of Squamish. The area surrounding the Village of Pemberton is known as Area C in the Squamish Lillooet Regional District [SLRD]. Area C encompasses all land within a 20 to 30 minute drive radius heading west, north and east of Pemberton.
In relation to our search area, this includes the Pemberton Meadows, agricultural properties on the fringe of Pemberton, Walkerville Estates, Ivey Lake Estates, Owl Ridge, the Birken valley (including Poole Creek, Birken, Devine & D’Arcy) Anderson and Birkenhead Lakes in the Gates Creek Valley as well as Bralorne, Goldbridge, Gun Lake, Tyaughton Lakes and the remainder of the Bridge River Valley.
Those looking to purchase in the SLRD will find everything from half acre lots to sprawling estates, cottage country, working farms and waterfront properties. While areas such as Walkerville, Ivey Lake Estates and Owl Ridge are primarily residential, the communities in the outlying areas (Lillooet Lake and Birken, for example) provide a mix of residential and recreational properties.
