Expression of Interest - St. John's Local Board of Appeal

The City of St. John’s invites expressions of interest from persons wishing to become a member of the St. John’s Local Board of Appeal to fill one vacancy. The City believes in equal opportunity and is committed to reflecting the community’s diversity on our boards and committees.
The Appeal Board hears appeals of decisions of the City made under the City’s Development Regulations with respect to:

  • applications to undertake development
  • revocation of an approval or permit to undertake development
  • the issuance of a Stop Work Oder issued under the Development Regulations; or
  • a decision permitted under the Urban and Rural Planning Act, 2000 (UPPA, 2000)

The Appeal Board is bound by the Development Regulations and URPA, 2000 and cannot substitute its discretion for that of Council.
The Appeal Board is comprised of 5 persons. The appointment is for a three-year term and members may be appointed for an additional three-year term. Renumeration is $150 per meeting and given COVID 19 protocols hearings may be held virtually or in-person.
Members of the Appeal Board should have experience in at least one of the following areas:

  • land use development and community planning
  • architecture, urban design, environmental design, law, engineering, construction, or real estate; and/or
  • legislation and policy.

Previous experience on a board or tribunal would be an asset.

Interested persons should forward a detailed resume on or before Wednesday, July 6, 2022, to:
Karen Chafe, City Clerk, City of St. John’s
