Public Hearings

What is a Public Hearing, and what is it for?

Public Hearings are the principal procedural protection for property owners when a local government is enacting bylaws such as Official Community Plans, Zoning Bylaws, or Heritage Regulations. 

The purpose of a public hearing is to ensure that the public has an opportunity to make representations to the local government about the proposed bylaw(s).  Specifically, the Local Government Act states "all persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw must be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions regarding matters contained in the bylaw that is the subject of the hearing."
