Is There a Public Review?

Public Notification

The Approving Officer will forward a Notice of Application to all immediately adjacent property owners of the land under application for Subdivision.

Under section 86 of the Land Title Act, the Approving Officer is under no obligation to hear from surrounding landowners or any other person in the community. However, the Approving Officer may decide that public consultation may be beneficial to gain input with respect to the proposed subdivision and may require the Owner to hold a public meeting in accordance with Council Policy DEV-110 Public Notification & Consultation for Development Applications.

The Approving Officer will advise the Owner if a public meeting is required at this stage, with all fees associated with this public consultation to be paid for by the Owner.
