Development Appeals Board
The Development Appeals Board hears appeals when a proposed property development or land subdivision is denied because it is in violation of the provisions of the Zoning Bylaw. It is the statutory duty of the Development Appeals Board to consider all evidence presented, with respect to the application before them, and to only grant a variance if satisfied on three levels:
- the approval of the variance application results in the applicants being granted special privileges inconsistent with restrictions in that zoning district;
- contradict the purpose and intent of the Zoning Bylaw;
- affects neighboring properties in a detrimental manner.
