What are the main steps to amend an urban planning by-law? How should a by-law that amends or repeals an existing by-law be drafted? What is a freeze effect and how does it work? Is the by-law subject to referendum approval? What should you pay particular attention to when amending this type of regulation? The procedure for amending and adopting urban planning by-laws is very complex and requires careful consideration of the purpose of the amendment to ensure that the formalities in the ALPD are met. This basic training will allow you to familiarize yourself with this task in order to avoid unfortunate situations.
