If you are planning on building, changing the existing grade, adding or removing material if you are near a river, stream, lake, shoreline, wetland or slope, you may need a permit for these activities.
Environmental Planning is a preventative and consultative process that promotes healthy ecosystems and watersheds, prevents loss of life and minimizes the risk of damage to property from flooding and erosion hazards. The Authority’s jurisdiction covers portions of Grey and Bruce Counties including 219.6 kilometres (136.5 miles) of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron shoreline and a large portion of the Niagara Escarpment (A World Biosphere Reserve).
Our Environmental Planning Program operates within the framework of the Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alteration to Shorelines and Watercourses Regulation ( also known as Ontario Regulation 151/06 ) and the Conservation Authorities Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.27.
