The clerk or the secretary-treasurer of the local municipality must send to the secretary-treasurer of the regional county municipality a copy of the application as soon as possible, to the extent that the authorization complies with the by-laws of the local municipality.
Before ruling on an application for authorization, the council must obtain the opinion of the local heritage council.
A person performing an act described in the first paragraph must comply with any conditions the council of the municipality sets out in its authorization.

If a project is interrupted, the withdrawal of the authorization does not prevent the municipality from obtaining an order under section 203.
This section does not apply to the division, subdivision or parcelling out of an immovable on the vertical cadastral plan.
