If you are starting a new business, moving your business or changing business activities in an existing business, you will need to obtain zoning approval to ensure that your business meets the zoning rules in your location.
Business owners are strongly encouraged to obtain zoning approval before signing a lease.
Alternatively, you can sign a conditional lease where the lease is not binding until zoning approval is obtained. If you have questions about signing conditional leases, please contact Business Link for assistance with understanding commercial leases.
Visit Zoning for Approval for more information on how to identify which zone you are in and how to obtain zoning approval.
