Town council has approved a development permit to locate a shed for a retail vegetable business near Highway 3.
Council discussed the permit during their June 12 council meeting. As the location falls within a Direct Control District, the formal approval of town council was required.
The shed measures 3.66m x 6.1m (12’ x 20’) or 22.33m square, and will be used to operate a small produce retail business on the property. The business had been previously located on another lot in the Comprehensive Commercial District, but had been required to relocate.
According to the development permit application the business is a numbered company, 1689191 Alberta Ltd. The applicant purchased a shed built off-site and requested to move it on to the property. The shed is on skids.
According to administration, the “proposed development is consistent with the relevant statutory plan and in the opinion of the development authority does not unduly impact the neighbouring properties.”
Following discussion, council voted unanimously to approve Development Permit DP 23-038 for a moved-on shed for produce retail located at 5508 46 Avenue (Hwy 3) (Lot 23, Block 21, Plan 1410557).
The approval included a list of 10 conditions, such as keeping the structure in good repair, conforming to the requirement of the Direct Control District 2 (DC-2), and obtaining a building permit.
