Conditional Uses

A Conditional Use is a use of land or building that may be allowed under a Zoning By-law. Certain uses are deemed Conditional based on their unique characteristics that cannot properly be classified in any particular zone or zones without consideration of the impact of those uses upon neighbouring properties.

The R.M. of Taché Zoning By-law contains a Principal Use Table and Accessory Use Table that identifies Permitted ("P") and Conditional ("C") and Not Permitted ("-") with a specific zone. Click on the tables below.

“Home business” means non-offensive light manufacturing activities and small businesses that may be permitted as a second use, in addition to the principal use. Home Businesses are considered Accessory Uses and may be allowed on the same zoning site as a Principal Use. The Accessory Use Table 3-5 identifies that Home Businesses are Conditional ("C") within most zones and a Conditional Use Application will be required. If there is a "-" in the table for a zone that means it is Not Permitted.

Please see the Accessory Use Table to see if a Home Business may be applied for and please also see the specific Home Business Requirements from the Zoning By-law.

“Secondary suite”, means a self-contained accessory dwelling unit located either within a permanent, detached, single-unit dwelling, or in an accessory building, on a single zoning site. A secondary suite contains a single housekeeping unit and has its own separate access, cooking, sleeping and sanitary facilities which are separate from and not shared with those of the principal dwelling. This use does not include two-unit dwellings or multiple-unit dwellings. Secondary Suites are considered Accessory Uses and may be allowed on the same zoning site as a Principal Use. The Accessory Use Table 3-5 identifies that Secondary Suites are Conditional ("C") within most zones and a Conditional Use Application will be required. If there is a "-" in the table for a zone that means it is Not Permitted.
