The Land Advisory Committee (CCU) was established pursuant to the Planning Act, which came into force in 1979.
In the Town of Brome Lake, such a committee has existed since 1972. In 1988 the by-laws governing the committee were revised completely.
Under the relevant statutes, the Committee, pursuant to section 133 of the Act, is charged with the responsibility of studying and submitting to Council recommendations on all matters concerning town planning, zoning, lot subdivisions, and construction. In addition, the Committee is called upon to make recommendations concerning minor derogations.
This is an advisory committee, not a decision-making committee: it is Council that must make the decisions on any matter submitted. Council is not bound to follow the committee’s recommendations.
Councillor Robert Laflamme chairs the Committee.
