As of January 2019, Council retained its consent granting authority and disbanded the Committee of Adjustment. Consent hearings will be held by Council in conjunction with regular Council meetings.
Applications and Planning Reports will be included with the regular Council Agenda Package.
The Committee of Adjustment of the Township of Mulmur mandate:
This committee is charged with interpreting the official plan and zoning bylaws with regard to land division or minor variance requests. Land division could involve the creation of a new lot, re-alignment of property boundaries, or long term easements. Minor variances arise where a property owner cannot meet the requirements of the zoning by-law, for example, when a structure is planned to be placed too close to a property line. Application would be made for relief from that provision. For both of these functions the Committee will perform site inspections and hold a hearing to allow members of the public a voice in the matter, then make a decision to accept or deny the application.
