Powers and responsibilities

The planning and zoning by-laws specify the uses permitted in each zone and prescribe standards for buildings and structures such as setback, size and height. However, particular conditions of certain properties may make it difficult to comply with a prescribed standard.

Requests to the PRAC

All completed applications must be submitted to the Planning Department prior to the last business day of the month preceding the meeting. A letter will be sent to property owners in the vicinity of the property in question, to inform them of the proposed project and provide them with the opportunity to comment.
