Building Permits - Commercial & Institutional

On November 27, 2023, Council approved a resolution directing that:

  • staff prepare amendments to Zoning Bylaw No. 4662, 2010 to add business or commercial school, fitness and body care, health care office, pet care establishment, pharmacy, and veterinary medical clinic to the list of uses which, combined, must not occupy more than 20% of the width of the ground (sidewalk level) floor of each block face within the AC1, AC2 and C2 zones in Ambleside and Dundarave; and
  • building permit and business license applications that might conflict with these proposed zoning amendments be brought to Council’s attention as soon as possible, so that Council can consider withholding permits and licenses as authorized by section 463 of the Local Government Act.

This would not impact annual business license renewals for existing businesses. Please contact Bylaw and Licensing Services staff if you have questions about whether this would apply to your application.
