RM of Laird No. 404 Public Notice –Zoning Bylaw Amendment


Public Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Rural Municipality (RM) of Laird No. 404 intends to adopt a bylaw under The Planning and Development Act, 2007; an amendment to Bylaw No. 6-2008, known as The Zoning Bylaw (ZB).

INTENT: The proposed ZB amendment would affect regulations pertaining the permitting process for aggregate operations by: clarifying and expanding upon aggregate operation permit application requirements that relevant information pertaining to a proposed application can be properly assessed by Council; changing a potential permit length from the current maximum of 2 years to a maximum of 10 years and provide guidance for permit extension; and, creating specific site regulations for aggregate operations within the Agricultural District (AG).

AFFECTED LAND: All lands within the RM would be affected by changes to application requirements and permit length wherever an aggregate operation is an allowable land use. The AG District would be specifically affected by the introduction of site regulations. A copy of the proposed amendment is available here for public viewing: https://rmoflaird.ca/category/rm-notices/.

REASON: A couple recent development permit applications for aggregate operations have been received by the RM for review. Upon review, it was determined that the ZB requirements and regulations could benefit from updates to improve clarity, provide Council with information relevant to an application review, and better accommodate the nature of, and relevant factors pertaining to, aggregate operations.

PUBLIC INSPECTION: Any person may inspect the bylaw at the RM of Laird No. 404 office during regular office hours, excluding statutory holidays. Draft copy of the proposed bylaw is available from the RM office; hard copies at cost, and a free digital copy is available at web address above. The RM office is located at 3025 Central Avenue, Waldheim, SK S0K 4R0.

PUBLIC HEARING: Council will hold a public hearing on February 9, 2024, at 10:00 AM, to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw. The deadline for receipt of written comments and requests for representation at the meeting must be received by the RM office by February 8,2024. For additional information, please contact (306) 945-2133 or administrator@rmoflaird.ca.

Issued at the Town of Waldheim this 18th day of January 2024.
