Municipal Peer Review

Person Sitting at Desk Doing Document Peer Review

Burnside provides peer review services to numerous municipalities in support of a wide variety of land development applications, including subdivisions, site plans, site alterations, and aggregate operations.

Capabilities and Expertise

Our team tailors our services to meet the needs of our municipal clients. At a minimum, we peer review engineering drawing submissions for compliance with local standards and have full oversight of the construction process. Our role can expand to include planning application reviews, authoring master plans, participating in financial and development charge planning, and negotiating development agreements.

Furthermore, we regularly represent municipalities as an expert witness at Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) hearings for development applications.
