Source Water Protection Restricted Land Use Application
New source protection plan policies can affect future development if you live wholly or partially within a wellhead protection area (WHPA) in the City of Hamilton. The Section 59 written notice is now a requirement for anyone who is submitting a planning or building permit application within the WHPA.
If your property lies within a wellhead protection area (PDF, 1.3 MB) in Hamilton, building and planning services will not accept your application without a Section 59 notice.
The restricted land use application must be filled out and submitted to the risk management office for review prior to the submission for a building permit or planning act applications. The information on this application form will help the risk management office determine if a development or building application is subject to Part IV policies under the Hamilton-Halton source protection plan and the Grand River source protection plan.
Any applications determined to require a risk management plan will require further consultation with the risk management official.
