Minor Variance

The owner of a property or any person authorized in writing by the owner who has been denied a Building Permit, a Zoning Certificate, an Occupancy Permit, or is unable to comply with the provisions of the Zoning By-law may apply to the Committee of Adjustment by means of an Application for Minor Variance for relief from the Zoning By-law.

Minor Variances may be granted provided that, in the opinion of the Committee, the request is minor in nature, is desirable for the appropriate development or use of the land, building or structure and if in the opinion of the committee, the general intent and purpose of the Zoning By-law and the Official Plan are maintained. The Committee of Adjustment is composed of five members, who are appointed by City Council for the term of the appointing Council. The authority of the Committee of Adjustment is set out in the Planning Act (Provincial Statute).
