Focusing conservation authority development permits on the protection of people and property
Ontario Regulation 97/04
Bill or Act:
Conservation Authorities Act, 1990
Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry is proposing to create a regulation further defining the ability of a conservation authority to regulate prohibited development and other activities for impacts to the control of flooding and other natural hazards.
Ensuring conservation authority permitting decisions focus and deliver on their core mandate of protecting people and property from flooding and other natural hazards is part of the government's Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan to help communities and families prepare and respond to climate change. The proposed changes will also provide the business sector with a clear and consistent regulatory environment in which to operate and will help to make approval processes faster, more predictable and less costly.
