PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

On Tuesday, May 14, 2024, Municipal Council gave Notice of its intent to establish Coastal Protection regulations by amending the Municipal Planning Strategy and adopting a new Municipal-Wide Land Use By-law.


The proposed regulations will guide how development occurs along the coast to ensure that new homes, businesses, and other structures are not placed in areas that could be at risk of coastal flooding or erosion, while protecting natural assets from potential harms caused by development.


PUBLIC INFORMATION SESSIONS will be held prior to the public hearing to give residents opportunities to learn about the regulations and ask questions. Dates and times for these sessions will be posted at engage.modl.ca/coastal-protection shortly.
