The Ministry of Municipal Affairs is proposing a regulation under the Planning Act in order to delegate MMA subdivision file Nos. 57-T-94001, 54-T-89003, 54-T-86001 and 49-T-95001 and MMA condominium file No. 49-CD-95001 to the municipalities in which these files are located.
The applications to which these files relate were all received by MMA at a time when the Planning Act did not contain lapsing provisions. All the applications have been approved; however final approval is pending clearance of conditions. Due to the age of the files, they cannot be delegated without first receiving a request from the appropriate municipality. The four municipalities impacted all have been recently prescribed as the approval authority for plans of subdivision and condominium.
Details on the files and the respective municipalities are included in the following table:
Delegate MMA Subdivision Files
|File Number||Date File Received||Municipality||Date Municipality Became Approval Authority||File Description|
|49-T-95001||March 24, 1995||Municipality of Callander||January 1, 2014||60 multiple dwelling units (part of larger development; 192 singles and 30 townhouses already approved)|
|49-CD-95001 ||49-CD-95001 March 27, 1995||Municipality of Callander||January 1, 2014||34 unit and 3 block plan of condominium|

|54-T-89003||August 18, 1989||Town of Kirkland Lake||February 1, 2017||9 residential lots and associated parkland|
|54-T-86001||July 11, 1986||Township of Matachewan||February 1, 2017||61 residential lots, 1 walkway, 4 streets|
It is proposed that the identified municipalities would be delegated these subdivision and condominium files on April 1, 2018, pending receipt of a request from the municipality.
Purpose of Regulations:
The Province is committed to a sound, efficient and effective planning system that enhances local autonomy and streamlines decision-making on planning applications. The four municipalities impacted all have been recently prescribed as the approval authority for plans of subdivision and condominium.
This initiative reinforces MMA's commitment to ensuring that decisions are made at the local level by municipalities that have up-to-date official plans consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) 2014.
