How Do I Apply? (Applications)

Step 1: Recommended Staff Consultation

Before you fill out an application, we recommend you discuss your plans with Town of Innisfil staff.  Staff will facilitate a pre-consultation meeting and provide the application, fee and meeting schedule as well as provide more information on Town by-laws.

Step 2: Submit Application & Required Documents

Submit your completed application and payment to the Town.  Application forms and a list of the required documents are available on the Town’s website as well as in the Customer Service area of the Administration Building.  The Administration Building is located at 2101 Innisfil Beach Road, Innisfil, ON  L9S 1A1

Applications

Attention: Please note that due to the growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Innisfil’s Planning Services Department is requiring all owners/applicants to submit their development application(s) digitally. This will ensure that applications will be reviewed by Planning Staff during a time when staff are making efforts to work remotely. Face-to-face pre-consultation meetings will be suspended until further notice. Should the Planning Department receive a pre-consultation request, we will try our best to facilitate a video-conferencing call with the applicant and required Staff to discuss the proposed application.  

Please contact planningservices@innisfil.ca for questions on how to apply digitally and to submit your development application(s). Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time.

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. 

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.
