What is a Public Hearing? It is a process that is distinct from a council meeting. When a local government is creating or amending a bylaw for an official community plan, zoning, phased development agreement, or termination of a land use contract, a public hearing must be held after first reading of the bylaw and before third reading. Public hearings are not required for other types of bylaws and permits.

At the public hearing, all persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw must be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard. This involves an opportunity to make a speech or presentation to the elected officials or to present a written submission.
