49. If, in regard to the whole or any part of a historic or natural district, classified historic site or protected area, a municipal corporation, a county corporation or an urban or regional community makes or amends regulatory provisions in relation to an operation referred to in the first paragraph of section 48, such corporation may, before or after their coming into force, submit such regulatory provisions for approval to the Minister, who shall obtain the advice of the Commission.
Where the Minister considers that the regulatory provisions submitted provide for the minimum standards and conditions required for the attainment of the objectives of this act, he may notify his approval of such regulatory provisions to the clerk, the secretary-treasurer or the secretary of the corporation concerned.
From the date provided in such notice, an operation subject to any of the regulatory provisions approved by the Minister shall not be undertaken in the whole or the part of the historic or natural district, classified historic site or protected area in question except in accordance with the terms and conditions provided for therein. Such an operation, in such a case, does not require the authorization of the Minister; no permit shall, however, be issued by a municipal corporation, a county corporation or an urban or regional community, if such operation is not conformable to the regulatory provisions approved by the Minister.
Every municipal corporation, county corporation or urban or regional community which avails itself of this section shall see to the carrying out of the regulatory provisions approved by the Minister in accordance with the second paragraph, or cause them to be carried out, on its territory.
