Board of Variance

The Board of Variance considers minor variances in siting, dimensions, or size requirements (side yard, back, front, height and area coverage) where compliance with the District of North Vancouver Zoning Bylaw would cause hardship.

The board cannot vary the permitted uses, densities, or parking under the Zoning Bylaw, nor does it deal with major variance applications. Major variances require a Development Variance Permit application.
