Zoning By-law Amendments
APPLICATION FOR AMENDMENT TO ZONING BY-LAW NO. 320-03
The fee for a zoning by-law amendment is $1,000.
The completed application along with the required fee is submitted to the Township Municipal Office.
Once the application is received by the Township office, a “Notice of Public Meeting” is prepared and circulated to everyone within 400 feet of the subject property as well as the persons and agencies as set out in the regulations. A Notice Sign will be provided to the property owner to post and the property owner must provide proof of posting.
At least 20 days’ notice must be given before a public meeting is held. The matter will be decided by the Township Planning Advisory Committee who meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers.
The Planning Advisory Committee’s recommended decision must be approved by Council who meet the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month.
If approved by Council, a “Notice of Passing of a Zoning By-Law Amendment” must be circulated to all applicable persons who received notice of the public meeting.
Anyone can lodge an appeal of the amendment within 20 days of the date of mailing of the “Notice of Passing” referred to in Section 6 above. The fee for an appeal can be found on the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) chart on our website at www.stirling-rawdon.com.
If there is no appeal within the 20-day time frame, the matter of zoning is considered to be finalized
