HPC 101. Law & Procedures

Because the work of the commission is quasi-judicial, it is important that commissioners have a working knowledge of law and procedures. When their decisions are questioned, the focus of the reviewing body will be on whether the commission was fair and followed their procedures in the decision-making process. Through a number of case studies, the workshop covers the following law and procedures-related topics:

  • Legal basis of authority
  • Ex parte communication
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Demolition by neglect
  • Economic hardship cases
  • Those interested in attending a course should contact the organizer to check if the session is open and there is available space for participants from outside the HDC area and to register.
