Committee of Adjustment: An Introduction

A Committee of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body established by Council as permitted by Section 44(1) of the Planning Act.

The Municipality of Highlands East Committee of Adjustment is comprised of three appointed members who meet on an “as needed” basis to hear applications for minor variance and alterations to legal non-conforming structures and uses.

Notice of a Public Meeting is given in accordance with the Planning Act and 10 days prior to a meeting for a minor variance.

A site visit is conducted on the applicant’s property by the members of the Committee of Adjustment prior to the meeting.

Each public meeting takes on average 15-30 minutes depending upon the complexity of the application and any agency or public comments that are raised with respect to the file.

Meeting will be held at 2249 Loop Road, Wilberforce, Ontario
