FORT NELSON, B.C. — The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality (NRRM) approved a development permit for a new McDonald’s restaurant at its January 23rd council meeting.
On December 6th, 2022, on behalf of McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada, the IBI Group submitted a development permit application to construct a 501.21 square metre restaurant and dual drive-thru business at 4804 50th Avenue North.
IBI Group must apply for a building permit now that the NRRM has approved the group’s development permit.
Previously, Imperial Oil Limited owned the land, which held a fuel station until 2008. The gas bar, service station and shop were removed from the site between 2009 and 2011.
Due to the site’s history, the ministry of environment previously identified it as a contaminated site. According to the Contaminated Sites Regulation under the Environmental Management Act, contaminants needed to be removed from the area before being developed.
The ministry then issued a certificate of compliance meeting the standards of the contaminated site regulation in 2014.
Should the municipality accept the group’s building permit application, NRRM said in a report that it expects construction to begin in the early spring of 2023.
It expects the project to be completed by October 2023.
