The Planning Advisory Committee is an appointed Committee of Council consisting of three (3) City Councillors and six (6) local citizens. Their mandate is to exercise such powers and perform such duties relating to community planning as are required by the Community Planning Act or City Council. The Committee is responsible for making recommendations to City Council on land use planning matters including Municipal Plan Amendments, Re-Zoning of property, Zone Amendments and Subdivisions. In addition the Committee acts as the approving authority for the majority of significant variances.
Anyone interested in making an application to the Planning Advisory Committee must first meet with staff, complete the required application, and pay the appropriate fee. Please contact the Community Planning Division at (506) 460-2075 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings (Current Agenda)
Regular meetings of PAC are held on the third Wednesday of each month, except in the month of December when the regular monthly meeting may be held on the second Wednesday of that month. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. in Council Chambers City Hall, 397 Queen Street, Fredericton, and is open to all members of the public. Interested parties with comments or concerns regarding particular applications are asked to forward a written submission to the PAC secretary or the Planner responsible for the application before the Friday preceding the meeting date. Any responses made to the City automatically become part of the public record and are therefore subject to viewing by anyone who so requests. As it is not unusual for applications to be withdrawn or deferred, both Applicants and other interested parties are asked to call Community Planning at (506) 460-2075 by 4:00 p.m. on the date of the meeting to confirm that their item of interest is on the agenda.
The Community Planning Division will make PAC packages available the Monday* before each meeting. The package, which is the same one that PAC members receive, includes the meeting agenda and the related planning reports and maps.
