Sometimes a development may not meet the strict requirements of the Municipality's Comprehensive Zoning By-Law. Accordingly, this requires a zoning by-law amendment to vary the zoning on that property. However, a development may be deemed to be minor in nature. In these instances, it can be quicker and less expensive to obtain a minor variance than a zoning by-law amendment. Consultation with Municipal staff is required to determine if the development being proposed is minor.
