Official Community Plans identify locations where the Regional Board may consider issuing Temporary Use Permits. A property owner may apply for a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) for land uses that are not permitted by the Zoning Bylaw. A TUP can specify the conditions under which the use may be carried out including, but not limited to:
- number of employees
- hours of operation
- operational conditions
A TUP can be issued for up to a maximum of three years. When a TUP expires, another TUP may be applied for. The TUP application fee is $600 and can take approximately three months to process.
