The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) reviews applications made under the Planning Act, and provides written comments to its member municipalities. Circulation regulations require that we be notified. We review your application for potential impact on natural resources such as floodplains, wetlands, water quality, steep slopes, and fish and wildlife habitat.
In order to recover part of the cost of the service, the CRCA charges fees for our review of privately initiated Planning Act applications. The CRCA Board has approved a fee increase for these applications to help cover our costs. The proposed fee schedule effective May 1, 2012 is shown in the table below.
We have also changed our regulations application fees effective May 1, 2012. Click here to view the 2012 regulations application fees.
