Guiding You Through The Minor Variance And Consent To Sever Process

It can be frustrating to have a development plan in limbo while it gets investigated and analyzed by the city, neighbours, and community organizations. At Vice & Hunter LLP, we know how costly delays can be for construction projects.

Our municipal lawyers have extensive experience providing developers and builders with the legal support they need to keep their projects moving forward. Based in Ottawa, our firm provides legal advice and services to developers and builders located across Eastern Ontario.

Representation Before The Committee Of Adjustment

The Committee of Adjustment is a municipal body that hears the applications for minor variances from the provisions of municipal zoning by-laws, as well as applications for consent to sever land. Our team will guide you through the process of applying for minor variances to the zoning by-law for your proposal.

We leverage over 40 years of municipal and land development experience to highlighting any legal issues or shortcomings in your proposals. Our legal team will represent you during the Committee of Adjustment hearing and support your proposal. If necessary, we will prepare any appeals to the Land Planning Appeals Tribunal and provide effective representation and guidance throughout the appeal process.

Guiding You Through All Legal Proceedings

In some cases, you may have municipal approval, but you still have to contend with unhappy members of the community regarding your development project. If your matter goes before the local tribunal, we will support your development plan by gathering the necessary land planners, architects and engineers to support your position.

We will help you identify areas to negotiate a settlement aimed at avoiding delays while still maintaining your development goals. We aim to help you keep your project moving to avoid additional expenses due to delays.
