The province of B.C. has agreed to lease a water lot in front of Songhees to the developer of the planned Victoria International Marina.
"It is a very important step for us that gives us certainty of tenure for the marina docks," said Lachlan MacLean, spokesman for WAM Development Group, a partner with local developer Bob Evans in the 29-slip marina.
Before construction begins, approval is required from Transport Canada and a development permit is needed from the City of Victoria.
