Lantzville approves temporary use permits

Lantzville residents who wish to apply for a temporary use permit can now do so after council passed the new zoning bylaw Monday night.

The bylaw was triggered by an uproar over urban agriculture after a local resident was found to be in non-compliance with residential zoning rules that do not permit growing food for sale on residential lots.

The permits can be applied for by any residents who wish to use their property for something other than what it is zoned for.

The permits, which cost $1,150 – several hundred dollars of which goes to required advertising and administration – are good for three years and can be renewed for one additional three-year period.
