146. From its coming into force, the metropolitan land use and development plan replaces the development plans and parts of development plans applicable in its territory, and the Community is a regional county municipality for the purposes of the Act respecting land use planning and development (chapter A-19.1), except Chapter I of its Title II, subject to the following modifications:
(1) the secretary of the Community or any other employee of the Community designated for that purpose by its executive committee and that committee are, respectively, considered to be the secretary-treasurer and the executive committee of the regional county municipality;
(2) the period of 120 days provided for in sections 56.4 and 56.14 of that Act is replaced by a period of six months;
(3) the Community may hold its public consultation meetings through its council or a committee established under section 50;
(4) subject to section 237.2 of the Act respecting land use planning and development, a traffic by-law of a local municipality whose territory is situated in the territory of the Community must be in conformity with the aims of the metropolitan plan of the local municipality and with the plan’s complementary document and sections 59 to 59.4, 137.2 to 137.8, 221 to 226 and 240 of that Act apply, with the necessary modifications, in respect of such a by-law.
The coming into force of the metropolitan plan has the effects, provided for in sections 59 to 60 of the Act respecting land use planning and development, of the coming into force of a by-law adopting a revised plan. For the purposes of section 252 of that Act, those provisions and the provisions relating to the effects of the coming into force of a by-law amending the metropolitan plan, and the rules relating to the conformity of the planning program, a by-law or an act with the aims of the plan, the provisions of the complementary document or those of a by-law or an interim control resolution are consistent with the Charter of the city of Montréal (1959-1960, chapter 102). However, the city is not required to adopt or amend a by-law not provided for in its charter; if the charter of the city provides for a by-law that corresponds to a by-law which the provisions of this Act mentioned in the first paragraph require to be adopted or amended by the council of the city, the council shall adopt or amend the by-law as it amends the planning program provided for in its charter, in accordance with the charter and with the applicable provisions of the Act respecting land use planning and development, with the necessary modifications.
