Committee of Adjustment

Committee of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment is a sanctioned committee under the Planning Act which has the ability to make decisions on Consents (i.e. land severances) or minor variances of the Zoning By-law. The Committee is a 'quasi-judicial' body with seven appointment members.

The Committee meets on a monthly basis or as needed. Applications for severance, lot adjustments or other matters are heard by the Committee at a “public hearing”.
If you are considering making an application for Consent or Minor Variance, please contact the Planning Department to schedule a Pre-Consultation Meeting. Doing so will save you time and money and help the process go smoothly.
The usual schedule for this Committee is the 4th Wednesday of the month at the Council Chambers (Hopeville Administration Office) at 9 am. (Except in July and August where it will be held at 1 pm). Other meetings may be called at an as-needed basis. In the event of no applications in any given month, no meeting will be called.
