Development Appeals Board
Any permit application cannot be approved by the Development Officer if the application is in contravention of the Town of Regina Beach Zoning Bylaw.
In the case where a Development Permit is denied by the Development Officer, the applicant has the right to appeal to the Development Appeals Board (DAB).
The Development Appeals Board is 3-5 members appointed by council. The board is to adjudicate appeals under the provisions of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, dealing with minor variances, demolition control districts, architectural control districts, misapplication of the Zoning Bylaw in issuing a development permit, refusal to issue a Development Permit because it would contravene the Zoning Bylaw, refusal of subdivision application, and any of the conditions of a Zoning Order issued on the property. They must consider special or unusual circumstances and that granting of variances to the Zoning Bylaw is consistent with the objectives of the Zoning Bylaw and the policies of the Official Community Plan.
If you choose to make an appeal, a Notice of Appeal can be made by written request. The Notice of Appeal should contain the address of the subject property, name and address of the appellant, nature of infraction, reason for appeal, and grounds for appeal. Your Notice of Appeal must be received by the secretary of the Development Appeals Board, Town of Regina Beach, within 30 days after the date on which the Development Permit was issued or denied, or from the date of the issuance of the Order to Remedy Contravention.
