The Committee of Adjustment has the responsibility of making decisions on Severance Applications and Minor Variance applications by considering the possibility of allowing some variation, some flexibility and some relief from the application of existing planning policies and controls, while also ensuring that any relief provided does not undermine or violate the original purposes of the planning policies and controls which have been put into place.
The function of the Committee of Adjustment is to review the application, staff and agency comments on applicable planning policies and regulations, information provided by the applicant, as well as the input of any neighbours. As part of their review of this information, the Committee must satisfy themselves that the consent constitutes good planning for the proper and orderly development of the municipality.
For this reason, it is not possible for any one person or agency to tell an applicant in advance if their application will be approved. The Committee does however, strongly encourage preconsultation with some of these agencies in advance of making a formal submission to determine some of the requirements.
