(3)  to prescribe the minimum area and minimum dimensions of the lots at the time of a cadastral operation, taking into account the nature of the land, the proximity of public works, or the presence or, as the case may be, the absence of septic installations, waterworks or a sanitary sewer system;
(4)  to regulate or prohibit all or certain cadastral operations, taking into account the topography of the landsite, the proximity of wetlands or bodies of water, the danger of flood, rockfall, landslide or other disaster, or any other factor specific to the nature of the place which may be taken into consideration for reasons of public safety or of protection of the environment; to provide, in respect of an immovable that is described in the subdivision by-law and that is situated in a flood zone to which a prohibition or rule made under this subparagraph applies, for an exemption from the prohibition or rule for any cadastral operation specified in the by-law;
(4.1)  to regulate or prohibit all or certain cadastral operations, taking into account the proximity of a place where the present or planned presence or carrying out, present or planned, of an immovable or activity results in land occupation being subject to major restrictions for reasons of public safety, public health or the general welfare;
(5)  to prohibit such cadastral operations or category of cadastral operations relating to streets, lanes, walkways or public squares and their layout, as do not conform to the dimension standards provided in the subdivision by-law and the intended layout of thoroughfares provided for in the planning program, and require the owners of private streets, lanes and walkways provided for to indicate that these are private roads in the manner stipulated by the council;
(6)  to require that the owner of any landsite previously submit to the approval of an officer designated for such purpose any plan for a cadastral operation, whether that plan provides for streets or not;
(7)  to require, as a precondition to the approval of a plan relating to a cadastral operation, that the owner undertake to convey, free of charge, the sites of the thoroughfares or a class of them shown on the plan and intended to be public;
(8)  (subparagraph repealed);
(9)  to require, as a precondition to the approval of a plan relating to cadastral operation, that the existing or necessary servitudes of right of way for power supply and communications transmission be indicated on a plan annexed thereto and showing the lots subject to them;
(10)  to require, as a precondition to the approval of a plan relating to a cadastral operation for its whole territory or a part thereof, the presentation of a project of parcelling out of land respecting a territory wider than the land contemplated in the plan and owned by the person applying for approval;
(11)  to require, as a precondition to the approval of a plan relating to a cadastral operation, that the owner pay the municipal taxes exigible and unpaid in respect of the immovables comprised in the plan;
(12)  to prescribe any other additional measure to govern division of the land as well as the dimensions of and development standards for public and private thoroughfares.
For the purposes of subparagraph 4 or 4.1 of the second paragraph, the subdivision by-law may, in particular, divide the territory of the municipality, establish classes of cadastral operations to be prohibited or regulated and establish classes of immovables, activities or other factors which justify, depending on the subparagraph contemplated, such prohibition or regulation. The by-law may, in that case, order prohibitions and rules varying according to the parts of territory, the former classes involved, the latter classes involved or any combination of a number of such criteria of distinction. The by-law may, so as to permit the determination of the territory where a prohibition or a rule applies near a source of restrictions, measure the extent of harmful or undesirable effects caused by the source.
