A Board of Variance (BOV) is an independent body of volunteers who make decisions on undue hardship applications. The CSRD BOV consists of 3 persons appointed by the CSRD Board of Directors for a three (3) year term.
Applications that the BOV typically consider include variances to a bylaw regarding siting, size or dimensions of a building or other structure, although there are other situations under Section 540 of the Local Government Act. BOV decisions are final.
