Form Changes

With the transition of the  Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, effective April 3, 2018,  the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) has updated its appeal forms and related municipal submission forms to reflect changes to the Planning Act.  The updates to these forms are intended to improve our stakeholders’ ability to complete the form by providing helpful and concise information in an accessible format.

Updates include:

  • The fillable PDF format has been updated for easier online completion and guides the user to complete information based on the appeal type.
  • Embedded links to helpful information, such as applicable legislation, the LPAT website and LPAT fee schedule.
  • Forms have been updated consistent with the Planning Act With the changes to the Planning Act, Site Plan appeals are now required to be filed with the municipality.

Municipal submission forms and the associated referral checklists have been updated to include direction on providing the checklist information in both paper and electronic format on a USB Key.
