Revocation Orders for Four Redundant Conservation Authority Regulations
Bill or Act:
Conservation Authorities Act
Summary of Decision:
December 1, 2010
Summary of Proposal:
The four redundant Conservation Authorities Act S. 28 “Fill” Regulations are the result of an administrative oversight to revoke them with the passing of the “Development” regulations in 2006.
The four regulations contain revocation orders for the existing four CA regulations (R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 137-Fill-Grand Valley, R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 139-Fill-Spencer Creek, R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 163 Fill, Construction and Alteration to Waterways - North Grey, R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 168-Fill, Construction and Alteration to Waterways – Sauble).
Each conservation authority in the province has (since 2006) a new regulation under Section 28 of the Conservation Authorities Act (CA Act), to control development, interference with wetlands and alterations to shorelines and watercourses. The previous CA Act S. 28 “fill” regulations became redundant with the passing of three new CA Act s. 28 regulations conforming to Ontario Regulation 97/04: the Content of Conservation Authority Regulations under subsection 28 (1) of the Act: Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses Regulation of the CA Act, O. Reg. 150/06 (Grand River), O. Reg 161/06 (Hamilton Region), O. Reg. 151/06 (Grey Sauble) respectively.
The redundant CA Act S. 28 “Fill” regulations are the result of an administrative oversight to revoke them with the passing of the CA Act S. 28 “Development” regulations in 2006.
