Who Can Appeal

Who May Appeal to the ISDAB?

Decision On a Development Permit:


  • Anyone who has applied for a development permit
  • Anyone "affected" (e.g. neighbours) by the decision may appeal.

Decision On a Subdivision Application:


  • The applicant
  • A government department
  • A school authority
  • Note that neighbours cannot appeal a subdivision application

Stop Order:


  • Anyone subject to or affected by the Stop Order

Amendment to the Land Use Bylaw by Council:


  • There is no appeal to the ISDAB in these situations.  Council must hold Public Hearings, in accordance with the Municipal Government Act, as part of the process to amend Land Use Bylaws.  That is the appropriate venue for members of the public to express concerns, support or opposition for those amendments.

Development Permit approved by Council for a DC district property


  • There is no appeal to the ISDAB for this type of Development Permit.  Council must hold a Public Hearing for the Land Use Bylaw amendment to designate a property as a DC (Direct Control) district.  Council is the approving authority for all Development Permits in all DC districts.
