|Fee & Schedules|
Under the Planning Act of Ontario, municipal governments regulate development. In order to reduce duplication and take advantage of technical expertise already available, conservation authorities provide technical advice to municipalities on environmental issues associated with Planning Act applications.
Conservation Authorities also regulate, under Section 28 of the Conservation Authorities Act, filling within the fill regulated area, construction within the flood plain, and alterations to watercourses such as erosion protection, crossings, and relocations of streams. Effective May 4, 2006, Ontario Regulation 153/06 (under 97/04) - Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses passed provincial approval and is in effect. The main objective of Ontario Regulation 153/06 is the continued protection of public safety and the environment.
