Temporary Industrial/Commercial Use

Temporary Commercial and Industrial Permits may be issued by the RDCK under the Local Government Act, S.921.  The intent is to accommodate temporary commercial or industrial uses as specified by the permit on lands that are not designated as such. The temporary commercial or industrial use may continue in accordance with the provisions of the permit until the permit expires, or two years after the permit was issued, whichever occurs first.  Permits may be renewed only once, after which the use must be either permanently designated in the applicable Land Use Bylaw or cease.  Temporary permits are not a substitute for a land use designation amendment in accordance with the bylaw.  Permits are also subject to approval by the Agricultural Land Commission where land is classified as farm under the Assessment Act. 

Please contact the Planning Department at (250) 352-8165 to inquire as to whether you require a Temporary Industrial/Commercial Use Permit.
