Summary of Decision:
In August 2008, the Minister of Small Business and Consumer Services appointed an independent safety review panel to examine the regulatory framework related to propane in the Province. Recommendation number 14 suggested that the Province expand the notification requirements for planning applications to include propane facility operators.
As a result, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing amended regulations under the Planning Act effective January 1, 2010 to require notification to propane facility operators licensed under the Technical Standards and Safety Act of planning applications for official plans/plan amendments (O.Reg. 467/09), plans of subdivision/condominium (O.Reg. 468/09), consents (O.Reg. 469/09), rezonings (O.Reg. 470/ 09), and minor variances (O.Reg. 471/ 09), where the facility’s defined hazard distance extends into the area to which the application relates.
