Committee of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment is a decision-making authority responsible for hearing applications under the Planning Act regarding minor variances from the Town's zoning by-law and applications for land division (i.e. severing and creating a new lot; adding land to an existing lot). The Committee of Adjustment evaluates the merits of a proposal against criteria such as:

  • Consistency with the Provincial Policy Statement
  • Conformity with the Official Plan
  • Compatibility with adjacent land uses
  • Maintaining general intent of the Zoning By-law

The Committee is comprised of two Council members and three appointed members of the public. Committee of Adjustment meetings are open to the public and anyone may attend to discuss a particular application. The Committee hears submissions, discusses concerns, and makes a decision. These decisions may come with attached conditions.

Planning Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Planning Advisory Committee is to make recommendations to Council regarding any plan, by-law, application, or other document initiated under the Planning Act such as Zoning By-law Amendments, Official Plan Amendments, Plans of Subdivision, and, at times, Site Plan Control Applications.

In making recommendations to Council regarding such applications, the Planning Advisory Committee shall consider:

  • Consistency of the proposal with the Provincial Policy Statement;
  • Conformity of the proposal to the County Official Plan, the Town Official Plan, and the Zoning By-law;
  • Positive and negative effects the proposal may have on existing and future development;
  • The identification of additional issues, including those presented by Committee members, residents, affected land owners, and external agencies (ERCA, MTO, etc.); and
  • Where appropriate, the need for additional information from the applicant and/or staff.

The Planning Advisory Committee shall make one of the following recommendations to Council:

  • the application be approved;
  • the application be refused with reasons; or
  • the application be approved if the concerns articulated by the public, commenting agencies and/or staff are appropriately addressed.
