What is the Town’s role/responsibility in applications?
The Town of Cochrane reviews and evaluates each submission it receives for a telecommunication antenna structure and will work with proponents to identify and mitigate any issues of concern.

Town Administration will attend all public consultation meetings to observe the information provided to the public, ensure that the Protocols are followed, and to clarify the Protocols and the Town’s role in the process as necessary.

After reviewing submissions, letters of concurrence or non-concurrence will be issued by Council for Type A submissions. Letters of concurrence or non-concurrence will be issued by Administration for Type B and C submissions.
