Board of Variance

The Local Government Act requires that a Board of Variance, acting as an independent body, hears appeals for relaxation of zoning regulations, extension of non-conforming uses, relaxation of servicing requirements, reconstruction of non-conforming uses and relaxation of tree protection requirements.
