Step 3: Public Notice & Sign
Once your application is deemed complete, a hearing date will be assigned and a Public Notice will be circulated to all property owners within a 60m radius of the subject property.
As part of the notification process, the applicant is also required to post a sign on the subject property. The sign will be prepared and provided by the Town and must be posted on the subject property two weeks before the hearing date and taken down one day after the hearing date.
The hearing will be conducted virtually and all applicants/owners or interested parties will be able to participate by teleconference. For more information on the virtual hearing process click here.
Step 4: Notice of Decision
The Secretary-Treasurer of the Committee of Adjustment will mail a copy of the signed decision to you and to all property owners within a 60m radius of the subject property, as well as anyone who filed a written request for notice of decision. The decision will contain information for the appeal process.
Step 5: Final & Binding Decision
If no appeal has been made by the end of the 20-day appeal period, the decision is final and binding. If a decision is appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, the decision is not final until it has been decided by the Tribunal.
