The duties of the Board are specified in Section 540 of the Local Government Act. There are four grounds for appeal each which involve different considerations. The precise wording of the Local Government Act is quoted here, and where there is a reference to another section, that wording is given as well. The four categories of appeal have been characterized as follows:

  • relaxation of zoning regulations;
  • relaxation of tree protection bylaws;
  • structural alteration where a non-conforming use is present; and
  • relaxation of subdivision servicing requirements
