This service plays an essential role in the planning and development process. It provides a means for property owners to seek variances and consent for their construction or renovation projects.

What is the Committee of Adjustment?

The City Council appoints a Committee of Adjustment consisting of citizen members. They regularly hold public hearings to consider applications for minor variances and consents. This committee primarily decides on minor differences, permissions, and allotment of land.

The Committee’s primary goal is to ensure all proposed changes or developments are consistent with the city’s bylaws, official plans, and zoning regulations. It helps to maintain consistency in urban planning policy.

How do iDiM Architects Assist With This Process?

We understand that navigating this process can be complex and time-consuming. Hence, our team of experienced architects and planning experts work closely with our clients to provide comprehensive support throughout the process. Here’s how we can assist you:

We take care of the Committee of Adjustment procedure. We research by checking the previous decisions to ensure the proposed development is within the approved numbers. Then we identify the minor variance/s through a Zoning Review application. We prepare our presentation and attend the hearing to act on behalf of our clients to pursue approval.

How Long Does The Committee of Adjustment Take?

The processing time varies between the municipalities. After the application is submitted, the city schedules the hearing within two to three months. Then the decision is made at the end of the hearing session, there is a three-week appeal period. The final and binding decision will be sent out in one week if no appeal is filed.
