I am aware that this form is for application purposes only and that anyone who starts any development before receiving written permission to do so from the Town may be subject to a fine. Only the kind of development described on the application form is to be undertaken and only at the site indicated. If I wish to use the site for any other purpose, I am aware that another application must first be submitted. If the land to which this application pertains is Crown Land or land that I am not the sole owner of, I am aware that approval of this application by the Town does not mean I can develop without also obtaining permission from the Department of Natural Resources or other land owners. I am aware that I am responsible for obtaining any permits from other government departments or for referring this proposal for review to government departments or agencies that the Town informs me of; and that I must provide copies of responses of such referrals to the Town. I am aware that the Town will not grant permission to develop if this proposal does not comply with the policies of its Municipal Plan; the requirements of its Development Regulations or other requirements of provincial or federal governments. If permission is granted, all applicable federal, provincial and municipal requirements and regulations will be conformed with. No information that could affect a decision to approve or refuse this application has been deliberately withheld or purposely submitted incorrectly by me.
