If, at the expiration of the fifteen days provided for in the second paragraph of section 37, the municipality has not applied to the Commission for an assessment or if the Commission’s assessment is that the programme or the by-law is not in conformity with the objectives of the development plan and with the complementary document, the council of the regional county municipality shall require the municipality to amend the programme or the by-law to bring it into the required conformity within such time as it may prescribe, which cannot be less than forty-five days.
The amendments are effected by a by-law which must be sent, on being adopted, to every contiguous municipality, to the council of the regional county municipality, and to the Commission for registration.
