Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks Ltd., 11220 Horseshoe Way – Unit # 103
(File Ref. No. 12-8275-05) (REDMS No. 4902299)



See Page GP-55 for full report



Designated Speaker:  Cecilia Achiam







That the application from Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks Ltd., for a brewery lounge endorsement, under Brewery Licence No. 306677, to allow the sale of beer by the glass or bottle, restricted to brewery products registered to the brewery under their Provincial Brewery Licence, be supported; and




That a letter be sent to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch advising that:





Council supports the amendment of an endorsement for a brewery lounge as the issuance will not pose a significant impact on the community;





Council comments on the prescribed criteria (set out in Section 53 of the Liquor Control and Licensing Regulations) are as follows:






The potential for additional noise and traffic in the area was considered;






The impact on the community was assessed through a community consultation process; and






Given that there has been no history of non-compliance with the operation, the endorsement to permit a brewery lounge under the Brewery Licence should not change the establishment so that it is operated in a manner that is contrary to its primary purpose as a Brewery;





As the operation of a brewery lounge may affect nearby residents, the City gathered the view of residents as follows:






Property owners and businesses within a 50 metre radius of the subject property were contacted by letter detailing the application and provided instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and






Signage was posted at the subject property and three public notices were published in a local newspaper.  The signage and notice provided information on the application and instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and





Council’s comments and recommendations respecting the views of the residents are as follows:






That based on the number of letters sent and the lack of response received from all public notifications, Council considers that the amendment is acceptable to the majority of the residents in the area and the community.
