Function

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 minister has delegated authority to the board to grant consents to sever land. It has also been delegated subdivision, condominium, validations, foreclosures and powers of sale authority. The board also processes applications to amend the zoning by-law.

Membership

The board has eleven members. Two members are appointed by the minister to represent the unincorporated area.
 

Term

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.

Meetings
The board meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
Remuneration

Appointees do not receive remuneration.
