New – Committee of Adjustment Guidelines

Many Leaside residents have experienced receiving a notice from the North York Committee of Adjustment informing them that a neighbouring house is being renovated or torn down, with new construction proposed that doesn’t quite meet the by-law requirements, and the owners are asking for “minor variances.” As we’ve all seen, some of those variances are not minor – and have significant effect, often negative, on immediate neighbours and the streetscape.

So…what can you, as a neighbour, do? We’ve prepared some Committee of Adjustment Guidelines to help you figure that out. Please have a look – and if there are things we’ve left out, let us know, as we’re happy to add more information.
