Toronto City Council Approves Creation of Local Appeal Body
|Area||Municipal, Planning and Property Tax|
On July 10, 2014, Toronto City Council voted 32-8 in favour of establishing a Local Appeal Body (LAB) to hear appeals of minor variance and consent applications from the Committee of Adjustment (COA). The LAB was established under section 115 of the City of Toronto Act, 2006, which permits City Council to constitute and appoint an appeal body for local land use planning matters. The LAB will have all the same powers and duties previously exercised by the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) for these types of appeals.
