ON-GOING: ACTION REQUIRED
Presented by Ashley Da Silva from Cllr Layton’s Office
- They are concerns that the space will be used for a live music venue and not as a restaurant.
- As no building permits are required at this stage of the redevelopment process – makes it hard for the City to understand and validate intentions of the owner.
- Original liquor licence application to the City was denied. Owners have re-applied.
- Cllr Layton in discussions with City’s Solicitor to draft conditions for new liquor licence.
- Concern that liquor licence conditions are too loose for a restaurant – especially around noise (conditions are less restrictive than noise by-law)
- Concerns about fire exits and fire safety. City assured TBCA that owners will need to meet building code for approval – Fire Services will need to ensure it meets code.
- Zoning for site is unclear (shown as a zoning ‘hole’ new by-law) – Planning Department is looking into it to confirm actual zoning.
- Owner would like to open in December.
- Action: TBCA to provide additional conditions for consideration to Councillor Layton’s Office. Conditions will be re-issued to owner.
