Planning and Assessment Appeal Boards

Did you know that development and subdivision decisions and property assessments can be appealed and that appeals are heard by someone other than elected officials and municipal staff? You can be a part of this important function in your community!

Beaver County, the Towns of Tofield and Viking, and the Villages of Ryley and Holden have established Joint Appeal Boards that hear appeals from decisions of the Development and/or Subdivision Authorities as well as complaints against residential or non-residential property assessments.

Vacancies have occurred on the Boards and applications are now being accepted from persons interested in sitting on both Boards. Applicants must be residents of Beaver County or the Towns or Villages within the boundaries of the County.  Appointments will be for a period of up to 3 years with a daily rate and mileage paid to attend hearings.  Training will be provided.

Click here for an information package and application form. Applications should be submitted no later than 4:30 pm, Friday, November 8, 2019, to the County Service Centre

Questions may be addressed to Margaret Jones, Assistant CAO, at or 780-663-3730.
