Toronto has the ability to establish a Local Appeal Body to replace the OMB for CofA decisions, as gristle mentioned. There is a subcommittee of Council looking at this. http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/decisio...ion=doPrepare&meetingId=6985#Meeting-2012.PZ2

here's some quick background... http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2012/pz/bgrd/backgroundfile-51829.pdf some interesting stats:
-87% of CofA decisions approved, 10% refused
-60% of refused applications are appealed to the OMB
-74% of the time the OMB overturns the CofA's decision

Thanks for this. If I understand correctly, if the local appeal board is established, it will be completely independent from the city. Additionally, the creation of the board would still require provincial consent. Lastly, an applicant would still have the ability to appeal to the OMB from the local appeal board...

So basically it's just adding another layer? Going from

Committee of Adjustment => Ontario Municipal Board

to

Committee of Adjustment => local appeal board => Ontario Municipal Board

I fail to see any benefit of adding this additional board that is worth the extra cost.
