This approved planning application (map) is for an amendment to the Quarters Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan to add breweries, wineries and distilleries as an allowable use.
A rezoning application has been approved to add breweries, wineries and distilleries as a use to multiple Direct Development Control Provisions (DC1) in The Quarters. This is a new use for inclusion in the Zoning Bylaw approved by City Council.
Previous Draft Use Definition
The previous draft definition of this use was:
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 provisions was to create additional opportunities for microbreweries, distilleries and wineries in Edmonton’s commercial and industrial zones.
This application was reviewed by City administration to determine the proposal’s compatibility with the surrounding neighbourhood. Following the review, a recommendation was made to City Council.
The proposal and recommendation was heard at a City Council Public Hearing. The public were notified of the Public Hearing date and time at least 21 days in advance.
