Committee of Adjustment

The Committee's mandate is to act as a quasi judicial body and hear Applications for "Minor Variances" and “Consents”.  A Minor Variance occurs where a requirement of a Zoning By-law cannot be met (under Section 45 of the Planning Act). This includes applications, which deal with the enlargement or extension of a building or structure that is legally non-conforming, or for a change in non-conforming use.  Consent include applications to "Sever" a property or for any agreement, mortgage or lease that extends for 21 years or more (under Section 53 of the Planning Act).


Meetings are generally held every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at the Administration Centre, 217 Gideon Street, Stayner. Dates are subject to change as required. Committee meetings are open to the public.
Please see our 2018 Meeting Schedule and download our applications from Applications and Forms or pickup at the Administration Centre.
