Functions of the Urban Planning Advisory Committee

The Urban Planning Advisory Committee studies all applications for minor exemptions, comprehensive development programs or any urban planning and architectural integration programs. It then makes recommendations to the Borough Council, which then chooses whether or not to act on them.

The Urban Planning Advisory Committee also studies and approves or rejects all demolition applications for immovables and other buildings, and decides on projects to replace demolished structures. However, any interested person, by filing a letter, may appeal the Committee’s decision before the Borough Council, which can uphold or reverse the decision.

Presence of the public

Since May of 2014, interested citizens have been able to attend meetings of the Urban Planning Advisory Committee. However, the public’s presence must not hinder, delay or influence the analyses and recommendations of the Committee. There will be no question period, therefore. Any questions concerning the files discussed must be directed to elected officials at Borough Council meetings or during public consultations.

Borough Council meetings are held at 5160 boulevard Décarie (fourth floor) at 6:30 p.m.

However, the following documents are reviewed in private:
• Application for a preliminary opinion;

• Any draft by-law aimed at adopting, amending or repealing the règlement de zonage, règlement de lotissement, or the règlement sur les plans d’implantation et d’intégration architecturale and the Master Plan;

• Any draft by-law aimed at the construction or occupation of buildings geared to persons in need of assistance under the terms of section 89, paragraph 4 of the Montréal Charter of Rights and Responsibilities.
