Consent to Sever
The Planning Act grants authority to Sarnia City Council to appoint a Committee of Adjustment to consider consent to sever land.
Minor variances are small changes or exceptions to existing land use or development restrictions contained in the zoning, sign and fence by-laws.
Pre-application discussions are widely acknowledged as being beneficial to the development process; as they ensure both developers and City staff understand the requirements that exist in bringing forward a particular development proposal.
When you divide a piece of land into two or more parcels in order to sell one or more, you are subdividing property and the provisions of the Planning Act come into play. Generally, to subdivide land into 5 or more parcels/lots, you need approval of a plan of subdivision from City Council.
