Public Meeting

A municipality or planning board must hold a public meeting on most types of development applications and before making a decision on amendments to the official plan or a zoning by-law.

At the meeting, the public can ask questions and give input on the proposal. Speaking at a public meeting is one way to reserve your right to appeal the decision.

Before the public meeting, municipalities, planning boards, the province, and developers may hold informal public meetings, open houses and community consultations.
