Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) Anticipated in Early 2017

The City of Toronto is continuing with its plan to establish an independent Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) to rule on appeals of decisions of the Committee of Adjustment and provide quick and efficient hearings.

The Local Appeal Body for Toronto will replace the function of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) to hear Toronto-based appeals of Committee of Adjustment decisions about minor variance and consent applications (relates to appeals for almost all residential homes). The Ontario Municipal Board remains responsible to hear appeals related to Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments, site plan applications and decisions related to subdivisions (covers appeals for Tall and Mid-Rise buildings).

Here is a link to the full text on the city’s website: http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=526cb31ee4dd6510VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

The city’s website also identifies new chair of the TLAB along with six members of the tribunal body. http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=e3b54b53d1c29510VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD&vgnextchannel=e4174b53d1c29510VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

SERRA is hoping that our residents and members will receive fair and open hearings under the new tribunal structure.
