The Authority has implemented a fee schedule for the review service provided in reviewing planning applications. A processing fee is generally collected at the time of application, by the municipality. Additional technical review fees if required are invoiced directly to the proponent of the application.

Hydrogeological Assessment Submissions - Conservation Authority Guidelines to Support Development Applications - June 2013 - 39 pgs. (PDF - 1.25 MB)
The “Hydrogeological Assessment Submissions: Conservation Authority Guidelines for Development Applications” document was co-authored by staff at CLOCA, LSRCA and NVCA, peer reviewed by a Conservation Authorities Geoscience group and endorsed by Conservation Ontario Council on June 24th, 2013.
The main purpose of this document is to provide information and guidance material to CAs related to hydrogeological assessment requirements that can be used to ensure comprehensive evaluations of potential impacts associated with development proposals on natural ecological features and functions that are supported by groundwater resources. The intent is that it be used as a resource to promote consistency amongst C.A.s in the development of terms of reference as well as for the C.A review of the resulting technical studies. The document may also be used as a resource to assist the consulting community in the understanding of the C.A. perspective regarding potential watershed impacts and serve to increase efficiencies and reduce approval timelines.
This guidance document provides a checklist of recommended requirements for hydrogeological investigations outlining recommended study requirements depending on the type of development proposed. The document also provides a short description of report expectations, report components, as well as some of the resources available.
It should be noted that this is a guideline document aimed at consistency amongst Conservation Authorities engaged in development review and is not a legally binding instrument. Additionally, a municipality and their Conservation Authority may choose to change the scope of the analyses required within their jurisdiction.
CLOCA’s Board of Directors approved the document for the purpose of undertaking a broader consultation process with local area municipalities and other stakeholders (SR 5156-13, Resolution #100 June, 2013). CLOCA staff are currently consulting with its municipal planning departments and the broader stakeholder community. Should you have comments or questions on the guideline, you are invited to submit them to CLOCA. Chris Jones (Director of Planning & Regulation, 905-579-0411 x116 firstname.lastname@example.org)
