Percy Paziuk (appellant) v. Director of Community Planning (respondent)

Indexed As: Paziuk v. Director of Community Planning (Sask.)

Saskatchewan Court of Appeal

Woods, Brownridge and Hall, JJ.A.

December 22, 1977.

Summary:

The Director of Community Planning refused to approve a proposed subdivision on the ground that the proposed plan contravened the minimum size requirements provided for in the zoning bylaw. The Provincial Planning Appeals Board affirmed the Director's decision. The Board, at the appellant's request, stated a case for the Court of Appeal pursuant to s. 177(2) of the Planning and Development Act 1983. The issue was whether the proposed subdivision could be prohibited on the basis that it contravened the requirements of a zoning bylaw passed pursuant to the Act.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal. This decision is being reported at this time at the request of a subscriber.
