* 3. Public Participation Policy Regulation - New

What’s changing: The Municipal Government Amendment Act added in a new requirement to establish a public participation policy for the municipality. This new regulation was drafted to accompany that requirement and proposes to:
  • establish a standard for the content of public participation policies;
  • set out the requirements for how municipal stakeholders will be engaged and the circumstances in which the municipality will engage municipal stakeholders;
  • require the policy to be made available to the public;
  • establish that the policy be reviewed, at a minimum, every three years; and
  • establish that a municipality must have a public participation policy within 270 days of proclamation of the MGA.
