 Bill 23 Notice: Conservation Authority approvals and permits


The passage of Bill 23 has caused confusion respecting the roles of Conservation Authorities (CA). Please note that nothing in Bill 23 has changed CA Regulations as they affect the Municipality of Lambton Shores. Boundaries of CA-regulated areas and requirements to obtain CA approvals for any structures or alterations to grade within these regulated areas have not changed.

In particular, please note that decks constructed on the banks of Lake Huron and inland watercourses continue to require CA approvals. Setbacks from top of bank contained in the Municipal Zoning By-Law continue to apply. Further, a deck is also required to obtain a building permit from the Municipality if any portion of the deck exceeds 24 inches above grade.
