Are you interested in a property for sale? Are you curious if any portion of your property is regulated by the Conservation Authority? Please see the options and steps for getting more information about a property.
Option 1 – Map your property
Our online interactive mapping tool can help you search for a property and see whether it is located within a regulated area subject to the Conservation Authorities Act. If the property in question is in an orange regulated zone a permit for development may be required. *
Option 2 – General property inquiry
To request a general property inquiry please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the address, legal description, whether you are an interested party or the current landowner, and the proposed plot plan, if applicable.
A general property inquiry will include a map of the property displaying any specific regulated features that are currently mapped for the property* (streams, wetland features, erosion hazards). The email response will include general information about policies or regulations that may be applicable to the property. A site visit is not included with a general property inquiry – see option 3 if a site visit is required.
Please allow for 48 to 72 hours response time for General Property Inquiries. More complex requests may take longer.
Option 3 – Detailed, site-specific, property inquiry
To request a detailed property inquiry please email email@example.com and include the address, legal description, whether you are an interested party or the current landowner, and the proposed plot plan, if applicable.
Detailed inquiries are more substantive and include a formal written response on Conservation Sudbury letterhead. See our fee schedule for more details on types of responses. Fees for detailed property inquiries start at $300.
Following receipt of the request you will be sent an online invoice for payment of the fee.
Detailed property inquiries identify development opportunities and constraints and known site history. Detailed property inquiries can take up to 20 business days to process. Detailed property inquiries must be requested by the current landowner or with the permission of the current landowner. Requests made by anyone other than the current landowner must be accompanied by an agent authorization form.
* Although Conservation Sudbury makes every effort to ensure accurate mapping, regulated natural hazards may exist on-site that have not yet been identified. Regulated natural hazards include floodplains, watercourses, shorelines, wetlands, and steep slopes, may exist on the subject property and would be regulated by the Conservation Authority.
