The Committee of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment is an independent body consisting of three members of Council and a Secretary Treasurer. The Committee is granted authority by the Province of Ontario to grant relief from the provisions of the Town’s Zoning By-law. The application heard by the Committee of Adjustment is a Minor Variance Application.


A minor variance can be described as a special privilege used to reduce the inflexibility of the zoning by-law and as such requires public notification and a hearing.


Applications can be submitted to the Secretary Treasure of the Committee of Adjustment at the Town Hall.
