Board of Variance - Town of Gibsons


The Board hears appeals from Town residents requesting minor bylaw variances (or relaxations). This usually includes siting, dimensions, or size of buildings. For example, a homeowner could request a variance to reduce a setback if a rock outcrop in their yard prevents them from placing the house within the required setback. In some cases, variance requests may be made to general regulations if they result in a hardship when applied to a particular site.

The Board consists of three members appointed by Council for a three-year term. Agendas and minutes are not posted online, and feedback is only requested from affected neighbours.
