Committee of Adjustment

The Springwater Committee of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body of 7 members of the public, appointed by Council, to make decisions on consents (severances) and minor variances. The Committee relies on the planning documents adopted by Council such as the Official Plan and Zoning By-law to guide its decisions. The Committee meets monthly (as required) in the Council Chamber of the Springwater Administration Centre. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
