Committee of Adjustment

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.
