The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal

The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal is a provincial adjudicative body providing an independent public forum to hear disputes under various land use planning statutes. In particular, the Tribunal hears appeals of decisions made by public bodies such as:

  • municipal councils
  • committees of adjustment
  • land division committees
  • the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Different types of matters have different procedural requirements and timelines for appealing or requesting a hearing. It is always advisable to consult with a municipal lawyer prior to proceeding with a hearing, and to have a lawyer represent you at the Tribunal.
