53.20. Where the Minister considers that the management plan does not comply with government policy, or that the provisions of the plan restricting or prohibiting the dumping or incineration in the territory of the regional municipality of residual materials from outside the territory are likely to compromise public health or safety, a notice of refusal must be notified by the Minister to the regional municipality concerned before the plan comes into force. The notice must also be sent to each neighbouring regional municipality or to each regional municipality served by an elimination facility located in the territory covered by the plan.
The notice of refusal must state the grounds for the refusal and indicate the amendments to be made and sent to the Minister within the time specified. If no opinion on the amendments is given by the Minister within 45 days of receiving them, the Minister’s opinion is deemed to be favourable.
