Following up on the KPMG-led review of the Committee of Adjustment, I am pleased to share the survey KPMG designed to gather feedback from the public on what’s working well, what is not, and how we can improve the Committee of Adjustment hearing process, with a particular focus on effective public participation. The survey is designed for residents who have participated in a Committee of Adjustment hearing either in support or opposition to an application. Applicants are being consulted separately.
The survey will remain open until June 30, 2022.
The survey can be found here: https://s.cotsurvey.chkmkt.com/Committee_Of_Adjustment_Review
A link to the survey can also be found on the Committee of Adjustment webpage.
We would appreciate your support in promoting this survey with residents in your Ward, either widely or to specific residents who have been in touch with your office about the Committee of Adjustment.
Once the survey closes, the consultant team at KPMG will analyse the data and present their findings and recommendations to staff. The City Planning Division will report on the recommendations to the Planning and Housing Committee in Q1 2023.
