What is the Committee of Adjustment?

The Planning Act authorizes the Council of The Corporation of the Township of King to appoint members to the Committee who are responsible for hearing applications which consider various matters related to land use. The mandate of the Committee as provided by the Planning Act is to consider planning applications which include: 

  • minor variances
  • consents (severances), easements,  property boundary line adjustments
  • changes to legal, non-conforming uses that current zoning does not permit
  • leases for more than 21 years
  • validation of title

Committee members are to evaluate applications for consistency with the intent of various planning documents including the Greenbelt Plan; the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan; Provincial Policy Statement (PPS); Township of King Official Plan and Zoning By-laws.

The Committee of Adjustment & Property Standards Committee term runs concurrent with Council.

The Committee of Adjustment meets once (1) every month to hear applications as received and assigned to that month's agenda by the Township.
