Discretionary Use – 25 Poplar Road

City of Corner Brook
Media Advisory


  The City of Corner Brook has received an application to change a current non-conforming use “building supplies shop/warehouse” to a less intrusive non-conforming use “Veterinary Clinic” in a new building on the property located at 25 Poplar Road, Corner Brook, NL.

This property is located in a Residential Medium Density Zone where the “Veterinary” use classification is non-conforming to the zone. However, the City of Corner Brook’s Development Regulations allows a current non-conforming use to be changed to a less intrusive non-confirming use. It also allows the removal the current building which does not meet the development standards and a new building to be constructed which meets all of today’s development standards in that zone.

Should you wish to provide comment about the proposed development, please contact the Development & Planning Office at 637-1525 or 637-1554  or comments can be emailed to planning@cornerbrook.com or forwarded to: City of Corner Brook, P.O. Box 1080, Corner Brook, NL, A2H 6E1; Fax: 637-1514 prior to 4:30 p.m. September 11, 2019.
