Board of Variance
When is a Board of Variance Permit required?
The Board of Variance deals with appeals for minor variances where compliance with the Zoning Regulation Bylaw would cause undue hardship. The Board also deals with matters regarding additions and structural alterations to non-conforming buildings. The Board cannot deal with matters related to land uses, density limits, or any developments adversely affecting the natural environment or substantially affecting the use and enjoyment of adjacent land.
