Planning boards provide advice and assistance under the Planning Act on matters referred by municipal councils and by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing (in the case of a board appointed for a planning area that consists wholly or partially of territory without a municipal organization). The boards prepare official plans for these areas and, at the request of member council(s), for municipalities.
In addition to the general functions described above, the board administers zoning by-laws for the unincorporated townships. The board has also been delegated consent, subdivision, condominium, validation, foreclosures and power of sale authority.
The board has eight members. Two members are appointed by the minister to represent the unincorporated area.
The provincial appointees serve for a term specified by the minister (typically a 4-year term to coincide with municipal elections) and until a successor is appointed.
- The board meets on the first Thursday of each month.
Appointees do not receive remuneration.
