79.2. A person wishing to erect a building, other than a farm building, on a lot in an agricultural zone must comply with any distance standard imposed on neighbouring farming operations by any Act, regulation or by-law in force at the time of the erection or pursuant to a municipal odour by-law.
No building permit may be issued by a municipality to the owner of a lot who fails to comply with such distance standards unless the owner has filed, for entry in the land register at the registry office concerned, a declaration to waive, in respect of each of the neighbouring farming operations required to comply with such standards, the remedies that would have been available to him had he complied with the standards imposed.
The declaration shall have the same effect as a real servitude; notwithstanding article 1181 of the Civil Code of Québec (Statutes of Québec, 1991, chapter 64), it is established by means of a declaration registered against the lot for which the application is made and against each lot on which the buildings or infrastructures used for the agricultural activity subject to the distance standards are situated.
