Key Proposed Changes for Industrial Development

In the proposed Zoning Bylaw, the Industrial zones have been grouped together with transportation zones (T-1 Railway and T-2 Airport) into a new “Industrial and Transportation Zones” section, but overall structure of Industrial zones otherwise unchanged.

Key proposed changes for Industrial Development include the following:

  • Expanded range of permitted uses in the I1 (Light Industrial and I1S (Industrial Park) zones), including animal shelter or animal daycare, contracting services, machine or welding shop, accessory alcohol manufacturer’s lounge (ie. Brew Pubs and Distillery Lounges).

  • Added a maximum floor area for restaurants in the I1S (Industrial Park) zone (40% of total floor area permitted on the property); reduced one minimum side yard setback from 7.5 m to 4.5 m.

  • Allow manufactured or modular homes as a permitted building style for accessory dwelling units in industrial zones.

  • Allow “light industry” in the I2 (General Industry) zone; allow “general industry” as a permitted use in the I3 (Heavy Industry) zone.

  • In the I3 (Heavy Industry) zone added a 30 m side or rear yard setback from a residential zone.

  • Reduced the maximum structure height in the I1S (Industrial Park) zone from 24 m to 18 m and reduced the maximum structure height in the I3 (Heavy Industry) zone from 60 m to 30 m.

  • Increased the maximum fence height in industrial zones from 2 m to 2.5 m.
