After 19 years in business, local business owner receives his first business license — 3 Comments

  1. But But.. what if the business is not legal where it is operating in there first place? Isn’t the Driver welding shop right next to a farm? What is the land designation now?
    We keep waiting for Council to bring Sooke into line with our Community plan. We still have a garbage dump and a car wrecker on Baker Creek leaching their garbage right onto the ground on Marilyn rd. None of this would pass an environmental study. There are rules for these things. Sooke Council just makes up their own rules.

  2. Not to indicate that they aren’t telling the truth, but did Council look at the previous years income tax or property ownership to confirm dates and title. Maybe they are just renting. There should still be an environmental study to ensure there is no damage to the creak running through the property. Just because he has had a welding certificate for years doesn’t make it a business. This will open up a flood gate to every property to change their designation just so they can sell it as a business and as a loop hole to get around the ALR.

  3. Driver purchased property in Sept 2000, wgich is 17 years ago and the property is AG same as our farm property. Due process has not been carried out.shame shame
