These provisions also aim more specifically to:

  • Favour the conservation and enhancement of natural environments of interest located in the ecoterritories (identified on Map 2.6.3 entitled "Natural Heritage").


6.4.1 Land parcelling

  • Borough by-laws must set criteria to require that land parcelling subject to subdivision by-laws governing a lot located fully or in part less than 30 metres from a riverbank, woods, wetland or stream in an ecoterritory, identified on Map 2.6.3 “Natural Heritage” must be carried out so as to:
    • Tend to respect the "Ecoterritory conservation and development objectives" identified in Table 2.6.1;
    • Maximize the conservation of woods, wetlands and streams;
    • Favour the layout of ecological and recreational paths that allow riverbanks, woods, wetlands and streams to be linked together;
    • Favour maintaining in its natural state a protective band of sufficient depth along the length of a stream, riverbank or wetland.
  • Borough by-laws must also require that cadastral operations be accompanied by a parcelling project bearing on the whole of the property.
