Corner Brook City Council gave one home-based business the approval to go ahead and another approval to expand during Monday’s council meeting.
A resident of Queen Street had applied for permission to operate a child-care business. Surrounding residents were notified of the request and the city did not receive any objections to the business.
A site inspection confirmed that parking is not an issue.
Meanwhile, A1 Safety and Training had requested permission to operate a safety training and consulting office from a residence on Dunbar Avenue. The applicant had previously been approved for one person at a time, but was now seeking permission for three persons at a time.
Surrounding residents were informed of the application and five residents expressed support for the business. Two residents objected to the application saying the area is congested with vehicles at times and in the winter it becomes quite dangerous.
A site inspection confirmed that parking is not an issue as the driveway will easily accommodate an additional parking space.
