Once the application form is completed and submitted to the satisfaction of the City, notice of the application, as well as the date, time and location of the public meeting is circulated for comments to adjacent residents and landowners within 60 metres of the applicant's property.
Various City departments, Members of Council, and other public agencies are also sent a copy of the notice. Based on the information received with the application, and comments received through the circulation, a report is prepared by the City Development Department and the Committee of Adjustment hears the application at a scheduled public meeting. The applicant or authorized agent must attend the meeting and other interested parties are welcome to attend and express their views, for or against the application.
The Committee will then make a decision of whether or not to approve the minor variance.
