C.C.S.M. c. P80 amended

1           The Planning Act is amended by this Act.

2           Subsection 148(3) is amended by striking out "125 days" and substituting "90 days".

Transitional

3           An application for a development permit made before the coming into force of this Act may be dealt with as provided in subsection 148(3) of The Planning Act, as that subsection read immediately before the coming into force of this Act.

Coming into force

4           This Act comes into force on the day it receives royal assent.

Explanatory Note

Under The Planning Act, if changes to a development plan by-law, zoning by-law or secondary plan have been initiated, an application for a development permit may be held for up to 125 days if the proposed development does not conform with the pending changes.

This Bill shortens that period from 125 days to 90 days.
