Application by Stephen Adams Consulting Ltd. to rezone 1601 Ketch Harbour Road, Sambro from P-2 (Community Facility) Zone to R-6 (Rural Residential) Zone to allow the storage of fish nets, fishing gear and equipment related to local fishery.
The proposed rezoning would allow the property to be used for any use permitted in the R-6 Zone. The proponent is applying for the rezoning in order to allow a fishery support use. A fishery support use in the R-6 Zone would permit:

• Outdoor storage of boats on the property; and
• Retail or wholesale of fish products
The applicant has provided a letter detailing the proposed business operations for the property (attached, below) as well as a location certificate showing the existing building on the property.
The application will be considered under the land use by-law amendment process.
The application has been reviewed by municipal staff and is now in the public engagement stage.
