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. 

The board administers a site-specific zoning by-law, has the authority to grant consents and has been delegated subdivision, condominium, validations, foreclosures and powers of sale authority.
 

Membership

The board has five members. One member is appointed by the minister to represent the unincorporated area.
 

Term

The provincial appointee serves for a term specified by the minister (typically a 4-year period to coincide with municipal elections) and until a successor is appointed.

Meetings
The board meets as required.
