The Municipal Government Board (MGB) makes decisions on disputes between municipalities when one municipality believes the adoption or amendment of a land use bylaw or statutory plan by a neighbouring municipality will cause detriment (mediation happens but separately from the MGB’s decision process).
The neighbouring municipality may file an appeal with the MGB within 30 days of the adoption of the bylaw. Previous decisions on disputes may be viewed on this page.
Statutory plans under the Municipal Government Act are defined as Intermunicipal Development Plans, Municipal Development Plans, Area Structure Plans or Area Redevelopment Plans. These are adopted and amended by bylaw.
Appeal fee: $0
