How to appeal
You can appeal all or part of this this instrument to the appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal by submitting a notice of appeal to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
There is an additional “leave to appeal” right under the Environmental Bill of Rights.
Who can appeal
A notice of appeal can be submitted by:
- public bodies
A notice of appeal can’t be submitted by:
- an unincorporated association
- an unincorporated group
You can, however, submit a notice of appeal as a member of the unincorporated association or group.
You have to have made an oral submission at a public meeting or a written submission to the council before the official plan amendment was adopted. Note: this is not required if you are appealing a proposal for provisional consent (no official plan in place).
Notice of appeal
Your notice of appeal must include:
- the specific part, or parts of the official plan amendment that you wish to appeal
- the reasons for your appeal
- the appeal fee, payable by certified cheque or money order to the Minister of Finance, Province of Ontario
Note: appeal fees and options for reductions are outlined in the fee chart.
