Search for details about current planning applications and minor variance and consent applications.

Search Tips

You can search for three types of applications. At the top of the page, make your choice by clicking on the radio button for;

  • planning applications
  • minor variance and consent applications at the Committee of Adjustment
  • decisions by the Committee of Adjustment under appeal to the Toronto Local Appeal body

Search Criteria:

  • for planning applications, please fill in the application number or the address
  • for Committee of Adjustment applications, please fill-in the Reference File number or the address
  • click on the Search button and the results are displayed as pushpins on the map.

There are several options you can select to search for Planning Applications. The options you select will determine the results.

For example, if you fill in all five search boxes the search result will yield one application. If you select a Ward or District the result could yield hundreds of applications. Not all boxes need to be filled in order to generate results.

Filling in the Search Boxes


When you click on the map, you are selecting a Ward which will appear in the Ward box below the map. The District in which the Ward is located will be filled into the District box automatically. You can also select the Ward or District from the drop-down boxes.


There are four boxes for the address and not all need to be filled to search for applications. The street number is typed into the first box. The name of the street is typed into the second box. The street type can be selected from a drop-down box. The street direction (north, south, east and west) can be selected from the drop-down box.

Application number

There are five boxes for the application number. Only the year and sequence number (first and second boxes) need to be filled to generate a result. The last two digits of the year are typed into the first box. For example, the year 2008 would be entered as 08. The six-digit sequence number is typed into the second box. This number helps to distinguish one application from others received that year.

The District is typed into the third box. You need to enter only three letters as follows:

City Planning Districts

WET = Etobicoke York  |  NNY = North York  |  ESC = Scarborough  |  STE = Toronto & East York
