After receiving an application, the Development Technician will conduct a preliminary ‘Prescreen Review’ task to ensure that the required plans and documents have been successfully uploaded. The Development Technician will also ensure all submitted plans and documents meet the City’s ePLAN Submission Standards and the application fees have been determined and confirmed.
Note: The submission does not become an application with the benefit of a review timeline until it passes the City’s ‘Prescreen Review’ process and the application fees are paid.
The Minister will review Council’s recommendation and render a decision.
The Minister also has discretion to refer matters to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) for a recommendation. A hearing will be held and the OLT will provide a recommendation to the Minister to render the final decision on the matter.
