Board of Variance

A local government that has adopted a zoning bylaw must, by bylaw, establish a board of variance to consider requests from property owners to vary Zoning Bylaw requirements where compliance with the bylaw would create undue hardship.

As variances are currently considered by Council during regular council meetings, the City of Prince George Board of Variance does not have a regular meeting schedule and would meet only as required.
