The Protocols outline a public consultation process that proponents must follow. The level of public consultation is determined by the type and size of structure proposed.
Type A submissions:
Proponents are required to host a public consultation meeting. Town residents will be notified of the public consultation meeting via a public notice posted in the Cochrane Times and the Cochrane Eagle for two consecutive weeks. Additionally, residents within 300 m of the proposed Type A structure will receive written notification of the public consultation meeting.
Affected residents are encouraged to attend public consultation meetings for submissions in their neighbourhood in order to have a say in the process.
Type B submissions:
Public consultation is not required; a notice is published as information.
Type C submissions:
The Town requires 14 days advance notice in writing.
