What or who is LPAT?
The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal is the replacement body for the old Ontario Municipal Board. This quasi-judicial body is the route of appeal for developers who dispute a municipal planning decision. As with a court of law, there are procedural rules, expert witnesses and evidence presented both for and against. The Tribunal has the power to override the municipal decision.
