Building Permit Applications and New DCCs
Effective January 1, 2011, the new s. 937.001 of the Local Government Act comes into force, protecting building permit applicants from new DCC bylaws unless the applicant agrees that the bylaw will apply. Section 937.001 was part of Bill 11, the Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act (No. 2), 2010. It provides protection for building permit applicants similar to that afforded to subdivision applicants under s. 943 of the Local Government Act.
