The City is in receipt of an application by Messa Greens to operate a Home Occupation at 23 Blade Crescent to accommodate a small-scale indoor urban agriculture business. The proposed home-based business activity includes the production of vegetables, such as greens and herbs. No customers are expected to visit the dwelling. The applicant is requesting to apply a 10% variance to the maximum allowable floor area dedicated to the Home Occupation, from 20m² to 22m², resulting in approximately 8.7% of the dwelling being devoted to the use. The subject property is located within the Residential – Medium Density (RMD) Use Zone and a Home Occupation is subject to section 7.18 of the City’s Development Regulations. The proposal is within the range of uses Council may permit at its discretion, subject to Regulation 4.17, requiring public notice.

Prior to making their decision, Council invites comments in writing no later than 12:00 noon, Monday, October 26, 2020. Comments received form part of the public record. If you do not wish your name attributed to your submission, please advise the City. Should no comments be received, the briefing session will be cancelled. Should the briefing session proceed, a location and format will be determined based on feedback.
