Application For A Committee Of Adjustment Minor Variance

A Minor Variance is an allowance Council may award to Building and set back requirements (i.e., you want to build closer to the Lot Line than required).

A Minor Variance is a procedure under the Planning Act that requires notification to surrounding Property owners and a Public Meeting. The process takes from 30 to 45 days.  Any Property owner can apply, and the Municipal Staff will help you complete the document or advise you about the need for a Variance.

The application fee is $1500.00. You can download the Application for Minor Variance PDF format or pick-up a form at the Municipal Office.

There is no legal registration needed for this transaction.  A copy of the decision is filed in the Property file and Building file and becomes a permanent change to the requirements for the Property.

Telephone / Fax: 705-389-3311

Terms Of Reference

Whitestone Environmental Stewardship Committee

The Whitestone Environmental Stewardship Committee was created spring of 2021. 

The intent of the Committee meets the Municipality's objectives as outlined in our Strategic Plan:

4.    Environmental Stewardship

4.1    Outreach to the community 

The Municipality will continue to communicate and collaborate with community groups and associations that exist within the bounds of the Municipality as well as members of the public, as a means of focusing our collective efforts on environmental stewardship.  

The Committee will address environmental concerns within the Municipality of Whitestone as brought forward by Council and ratepayers.  It will coordinate and bring together our various Lake Associations, Conservation Associations and public members to utilize information and resources in a complimentary manner. 

When like-minded individuals work with common goals and priorities, a greater number of environmental issues will be at the forefront of Council's work.  Some of the key duties and responsibilities of the committee include advocating and communicating to the community on environmental issues, making recommendations to Council on conservation initiatives, developing environmental stewardship plans, and creating a common list of issues, objectives and priorities among our entire community.
