The Committee of Adjustment reviews applications for Minor Variances to the Zoning By-law, Fence By-law or Sign By-law or properties in the Town of Innisfil. If your project doesn't comply with these by-laws, you will need to submit a variance application. The Committee of Adjustment is a Council-appointed independent body.

Before you start

We recommend you discuss your plans with Town of Innisfil staff before you submit an application. Please contact our Planning Services staff to book a pre-consultation. Our staff can provide information about By-laws and the application process.

Apply for a variance

After your pre-consultation, complete the relevant form and email it to us at planningservices@innisfil.ca.

Other application forms

The Committee of Adjustment also handles other application requests besides variance applications. You can also submit a Consent Application or a Validation of Title Application.

Process

The Committee of Adjustment process takes approximately two months from the time you submit an application until a decision is made and the appeal period expires. If conditions are attached to a decision, the process could take longer. If a decision is appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal, the decision is not final until it has been approved or denied by the Tribunal.
