Committee of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment has a mandate to act as a quasi judicial body and hear applications for "Minor Variances" and “Consents”. 

Minor Variances

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).
