Home-Based Business Review Update
The issue of home-based businesses in the Town of Lunenburg is being actively reviewed by the Town of Lunenburg in partnership with the public and Provincial government. The Lunenburg Town Council values the important economic, cultural and social roles home-based businesses serve in our community. A wide range of home based businesses are already permitted in the Town of Lunenburg - from home offices, personal services, day cares, catering establishments and many other businesses far more expansive than which is set out in a model Provincial Zoning Bylaw. To ensure we are keeping pace with the changing needs and issues relating to home-based businesses, the Town of Lunenburg is leading an active review of home-based businesses to facilitate their development including:
1.) Lunenburg Town Council temporarily suspended the Zoning (Land Use) Bylaw requirements for two (2) parking spaces for home-based business customer, staff and delivery use. (B&B’s are already exempted from this requirement in the Bylaw.)
2.) Lunenburg Town Council has undertaken a review of the home-based business parking requirement to determine if it should be permanently removed from the Zoning (Land Use) Bylaw. Lunenburg Planning Advisory Committee and Town Council meetings have been held to seek input. Various reports have been prepared by the Town’s Development Officer. Before amendments to the Bylaw can be considered, an additional public meeting will be advertized to gain further input to help determine the right course of action.
3.) Lunenburg Town Council has made application to the Minister of Municipal Affairs to review the National Building Code, NS Building Code Act and Regulations relating to fire and life safety and accessibility requirements for home-based businesses, particularly those with a retail (“mercantile”) component. The Minister has agreed to refer this matter to the NS Building Advisory Committee for report and recommendation about potential Provincial legislation changes the Town must currently enforce.
