A planning application (map) has been submitted to add Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries as an allowable use to the Historical Commercial Direct Control Provision (DC1).
This is a new use being considered for inclusion in the Zoning Bylaw but is not yet approved by City Council. The current draft definition of this use is:
Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries means the manufacturing of beer, wine, spirits or other alcoholic beverages. This use may include the sale of alcoholic beverages to the public for consumption within the premises and the retail sales of alcoholic beverages manufactured within the premises for consumption off-site.
Accessory activities may include the preparation and sale of food, and storage, packaging, bottling, canning and shipping of products manufactured within the premises.
This use may have a private non-sale hospitality area where products manufactured within the premises are provided to private groups for tasting and sampling.
The rationale for adding this use to the existing DC1 Provision is to create additional opportunities for microbreweries, distilleries and wineries in Edmonton’s commercial and industrial zones.
This application will be reviewed by City administration to determine the proposal’s compatibility with the surrounding neighbourhood. After the review is finished, a recommendation will be made to City Council.
The proposal and recommendation will be heard at a City Council Public Hearing. The public will be notified of the Public Hearing date and time at least 21 days in advance.
