Question arise in is that

Q: the Does commitee of adjustmentment should review and consider this vivid nature of earth?

in toronto or any where on the earth if we have to adjust the runways, and if earths pole and maps moves every year around 40 meters! does that mean- none of the civil arrangements are not non changeable.and also apply this for line fence act cases

A computer simulation

shows the Earth’s magnetic field lines and two poles, with blue lines directed inward and yellow lines directed outward.

The planet’s northern magnetic pole is drifting slowly but steadily towards Russia — and it’s throwing off planes in Florida.

Tampa International Airport was forced to readjust its runways Thursday to account

for the movement of the Earth’s magnetic fields, information that pilots rely upon to navigate planes. Thanks to the fluctuations in the force, the airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to change taxiway signs to account for the shift, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The poles are generated by movements within the Earth’s inner and outer cores, though the exact process isn’t exactly understood. They’re also constantly in flux, moving a few degrees every year, but the changes are almost never of such a magnitude that runways require adjusting, said Paul Takemoto, a spokesman for the FAA.

The magnetic fields vary from place to place. Adjustments are needed now at airports in Tampa, but they aren’t immediately required at all airports across the country.

Committee of Adjustment

Committee of Adjustment
Toronto City Council has appointed a Committee of Adjustment consisting of citizen members. The Committee of Adjustment operates as four panels: Etobicoke, North York, Toronto East York, and Scarborough. They regularly hold public hearings to consider applications for minor variances, permission and consents.

Definitions:

Minor variances
Small changes or exceptions to existing land use or development restrictions contained in the zoning bylaw are called minor variances.
Consent
City of Toronto must grant consent for land transactions such as: to divide (sever) land into new lots, to add land to an abutting lot, to establish easements or rights-of-way and to lease or register a mortage over 21 years.

For public hearing schedules, please contact your local Committee of Adjustment office. The Planning Act of Ontario grants authority to committees of adjustment to make decisions on:

  • minor variances from the Zoning By-law

* http://www.toronto.ca/fence/What is a line fence?
A line fence, also known as a division fence, is any fence marking the boundary between an owner’s property and a neighbouring property.
Neighbouring property owners may disagree about the need to build a fence, what type of fence to build, or whether an existing fence needs to be reconstructed.

If agreement cannot be reached, the City has an impartial arbitration process authorized by the provincial Line Fences Act to help resolve line fence disputes. The initial fee for the process is $1,110.
Regulations for the height, materials, and other issues are outlined in the Municipal Code.
