Floor Plans

If your business is a cafe or restaurant, we will require a floor plan showing the tables and chairs so that we can confirm the amount of seats.  Our Licence Inspector can assist in determining the permitted number of seats.  The number of seats will be based on the occupant load permitted by the BC Building Code, more specifically, it will be a calculation based on either the physical size of the space, or the number of washrooms or exits.
