For any questions regarding Committee of Adjustment or the application process, please contact David Scott, Secretary Treasurer at (905) 318-5932 ext. 6220.

Severance (Consent) Application

A severance application is normally required in situations where a new lot is to be created, a surplus farm dwelling is to be severed, a farm is to be split, or lands are to be boundary adjusted to abutting property. Such an application may also be required for the correction/validation of title or the establishment of an easement/right-of-way on a property. A complete application for severance includes a completed Application for Consent / Land Severance, applicable fees, and a detailed drawing. Additional forms (Form 1, Form 3S and/or Form 4) may be applicable to certain severance situations. The approval process requires a number of steps as highlighted in the Consent-Severance Process Flow Chart.

Minor Variance Application

A minor variance application is required in situations where relief from the provisions of a zoning by-law in respect to land use, building or structure is required. A complete application for variance includes a completed Minor Variance Application, applicable fees, and a detailed drawing. The approval process requires a number of steps as highlighted in the Minor Variance Process Flow Chart.

Sign Variance Application

Haldimand County’s Sign By-law regulates the type, form, location, size and number of signs to be used on properties. A sign variance application is required in situations where relief from the provisions of the Sign By-law is required. A complete application for a sign variance includes a Sign Variance Application, applicable fees, and a detailed drawing.

The Committee of Adjustment is a committee appointed by Haldimand County Council under authority from the Planning Act to consider applications for land severance and minor variance from the provisions of a Zoning By-law. The Committee of Adjustment meets every month according to the 2021 Approved Schedule.
