Flags/stakes must be used to mark the proposed location of the approach and be indicated on the completed diagram included on the application form.


  • An application for approach approval under the RM bylaw shall be made by the land-owner or an authorized representative of the owner.


  • If, after completion of an inspection of the proposed construction site, the Foreman is satisfied that an  application for an approach approval complies with the provisions of the RM bylaw, written notice of approval shall be provided by the RM Foreman.  Written notice shall     include any special conditions and the minimum required culvert size.


  • All approaches shall be constructed in conformance with all existing government regulations, RM regulations and comply with the conditions and minimum required culvert size specified in      the written notice of approval.
