142. If the opinion of the Minister states that the plan is not consistent with the aims and projects referred to in section 141, the Community shall, within 120 days of service of the opinion, replace the metropolitan plan with another which is consistent with those aims and projects.

(1) the 120th day after service of the new opinion;
(2) the last day of the period established by having the extension period or the new period granted by the Minister begin on the date of service of the new opinion.
