Board of Variance

Although most construction and renovations to building in Kimberley can be accomplished in compliance with relevant bylaws, from time to time unique property conditions might make this difficult. When that happens, the situation may be addressed by Kimberley’s Board of Variance (BOV). In Kimberley, BOV consists of three members of the public selected in accordance with the Local Government Act.

BOV applications are made in two instances:

  • When a landowner believes that they will suffer hardship by complying with a zoning regulation
  • When a landowner would like to make a structural alteration or addition to a non-conforming building.

If this applies to your situation, complete and submit the Board of Variance Application Form.

Variances relating to building siting, height, zoning, and other land use issues may require a Development Variance Permit.
