A-19.1 - Act respecting land use planning and development

Full text
57.9. The Minister may request that a responsible body revise a metropolitan plan or an RCM plan if the Minister considers it warranted
(1)  to ensure, after the adoption of new government policy directions, that the plan is consistent with them;
(2)  to follow up on a regional or metropolitan report that is unsatisfactory as regards the achievement of targets; or
(3)  because the plan has not been revised in more than 12 years.
The Minister shall notify an opinion to the responsible body setting out the reasons why the Minister considers that a revision is warranted.
The council of the responsible body must, within three years after notification of the Minister’s opinion, adopt a by-law revising its metropolitan plan or RCM plan. If the Minister requests that both a metropolitan plan and an RCM plan applicable to part of the territory of the metropolitan community concerned be revised, the time limit applicable with respect to the by-law revising the RCM plan begins to run on the day of coming into force of the by-law revising the metropolitan plan.
The third paragraph of section 53.12 applies to a request made in accordance with the first paragraph.
