Notice of Waiver of Public Hearing

Zoning Amendment Bylaw (Parking Reductions for Patios) No. 8317, 2022


This is a legal notice the City is required to post that notifies the community that the Public Hearing associated with this Bylaw has been waived. This does not mean you cannot provide comment, however it does mean that the City will not schedule a special session to discuss it.


Notice is given under s. 464(2) of the Local Government Act that Council has waived the holding of a public hearing respecting Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8317, 2022.

If approved, this Zoning Amendment Bylaw would permit restaurant, café, liquor primary licensed premises (e.g. pubs) or lounge endorsement areas (e.g. breweries, wineries) to convert up to two non-accessible parking stalls, or a loading space, for patio use on private property.  Patios located on a loading space must be easily disassembled to continue providing loading access for the business.


From March 10 to 28, 2022, you can read the bylaw and related material online at in person from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday at Legislative Services, Second Floor City Hall, 511 Royal Avenue, New Westminster, BC V3L 1H3.
