Citizens’ Advisory Select Committee
Citizens’ Advisory Select Committee met on March 16. The recording of the meeting is posted to the Village website under the Local Government tab at: https://lytton.ca/government/committee-agendas-and-minutes/
Approving Officer Ron Mattiussi, Demolition & Building Manager Ron Dickinson answered questions on the proposed building bylaw.
Every effort will be made to accommodate people’s rebuilding plans. Property lines are being worked on throughout this process. Contractors will be working off pins that are already there. If your shed/garage was built over your property line into the next property it is likely that a variance will not be granted.
Setbacks are important for many reasons. Property owners should check the requirements before beginning their building. Check with the Building Department by emailing email@example.com.
Property owners who are concerned with setbacks on your property could apply for a variance under the Zoning Bylaw. Variances are applied through the Village Office and processed by staff. Staff then provides a report to Council for their approval.
To check if you have a legal variance, contact the Land titles office. https://ltsa.ca
