Temporary Use Permit for 97 Braid Street (TUP00028)
WHAT IS THIS TEMPORARY USE PERMIT ABOUT?
Fraser Health Authority has applied for a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) to continue using a portion of the property located at 97 Braid Street as temporary parking to facilitate phase 2 of the Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) redevelopment. The term of the TUP is three years until October 3, 2025. The TUP will have the same conditions as the original for phase 1 of the redevelopment consisting of up to 500 spaces for use by RCH staff and construction workers during the hospital redevelopment and food truck operation during times when the site is not being used by RCH staff and construction workers. The new permit would also allow the existing tenants located at the site (Planet Lazer, and the Soccer Academy) to have restricted access (after hours) for overflow parking.
This Temporary Use Permit was previously scheduled to be considered for issuance on September 19, 2022, but the Council meeting was cancelled because of the Day of Mourning for Queen Elizabeth II.
