Applications to the City's Committees

  • Serve Your Community on the Board of Variance

    Members of the public are invited to apply to serve on the Board of Variance, an independent panel of five members appointed by Council to consider minor variances from the City's Zoning Bylaw. One appointment is available for a term commencing November 1, 2021 through to March 31, 2024.

    Appeals to the Board are generally made by homeowners or developers when compliance with a minor aspect of a Zoning Bylaw (such as a side yard setback) would case "hardship" to the applicant.

    Why join the Board? This is an opportunity to play a role in development-related decision-making in Campbell River. No specific knowledge or qualifications are required, but an interest in civic governance and land use regulations is important.

    Criteria for membership on the Board includes being available to meet during working hours, with at least 10 days notice. Meetings generally last no longer than an hour. The Board meets when applications are received, typically 3 to 5 times a year.

    During a meeting, the Board will consider whether the application is "minor" and whether "hardship" is evident, and will either deny or approve the application. The Board hears representations from an applicant and/or their neighbours before making a decision. City staff provide administrative and technical support.
