Committee of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment, which is made up of five (5) local residents who are appointed by Council, usually holds a Public Hearing every two weeks to hear submissions either in support of, or in opposition to, applications for either Minor Variance or Consent (severances) submitted by the Applicant and/or their Agent. The Notice of Application is mailed out prior to a hearing to all "Registered Owners" of land within a 60 meter radius of the subject property and to notify prescribed Public Agencies, registered Ratepayers, and City Departments. All interested parties are invited to either attend the Public Hearing and/or submit in writing their views and concerns.

The members of the Committee of Adjustment are:

      • Hao (Charlie) Zheng (Chair)
      • Mary Mauti (Vice-Chair)
      • Robert Buckler
      • Joe Cesario 
      • Assunta (Sue) Perrella
The Ontario Planning Act establishes the authority for the Committee of Adjustment to make decisions on the following:
  • minor variances from the Zoning By-laws
  • consent to sever land into more than one lot
  • consent to register a mortgage over part of a property
  • consent to register a lease over part of a lot for more than 21 years
  • consent to create an easement or right-of-way
  • consent to a technical conveyance (where land was originally separated and has since become joined)
 Anyone considering applying for either a Minor Variance or Consent application can pick up an application form at the City Clerk's Office (or download an application for Minor Variance or Consent/Severance) and MUST contact the Building Standards Department to obtain the proper Zoning By-law requirements and the Development Planning Department regarding conformity with the Official Plan and/or Severance Policies of the City of Vaughan prior to submitting the application to Committee of Adjustment. Failure to follow this procedure may result in your application being delayed due to improper information having been submitted.
