Media Advisory

Please take notice that the Corner Brook City Council has cancelled the tentative public hearing for proposed Municipal Plan Amendment MP19-01 and Development Regulations Amendment DR19-01 (see summary of proposed amendments below, as per previous post). The public hearing was scheduled for 7:00 p.m., May 2, 2019 in Council chambers at City Hall. Where no objections were received—or no member of the public indicated they would like to attend the public hearing and make representation—by 7:00 p.m. on April 30, 2019, staff (as directed by Council) cancelled the public hearing in accordance with subsection 21(1) of the Urban and Rural Planning Act, 2000.

City Council will now be considering the proposed amendments for final approval at a regular meeting on May 8, 2019. If approved, the amendments must be submitted to the provincial government for ministerial approval and registration prior to legal enactment. In accordance with subsection 24(2), the amendments will not be in legal force and effect until notice of registration is given via the NL Gazette and Western Star.

Although the City is no longer accepting and considering objections for this amendment application, you may contact the Planning Office at 637-1554 during regular business hours (Monday to Friday) to receive additional information on the application and amendment process to date.
