Any permit application cannot be approved by the Development Officer if the application is in contravention of the Town of White City Zoning Bylaw No. 581-14

In the case where a development permit is denied by the Development Officer, the applicant has the right to appeal to the Development Appeals Board (DAB). 

The board's purpose is to resolve disagreements about the administration of the Zoning Bylaw under The Planning and Development Act, 2007 and is expected to be fair and impartial. The board has the responsibility to ensure the proper procedures are followed in decision making and that planning decisions made in error are corrected within a reasonable time frame. They must consider special or unusual circumstances and that granting of variances to the Zoning Bylaw is consistent with the objectives of the Zoning Bylaw and the policies of the Official Community Plan.  

If you choose to make an appeal, the application must be submitted to the secretary of the board (in writing) within 30 days of the receipt of the decision. The application should state the reasons for the appeal, summarize supporting facts and indicate the relief sought. Please note that a $50.00 filing fee must accompany the appeal application.

The board will hold a public hearing on the appeal within 30 days of receiving a notice of appeal.
