Permit Review Timelines
As part of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authorities Service Delivery Streamlining Initiative, the Board of Directors approved our Client Service Strategy (2019) outlining our commitment to client service and meeting targets for permit approvals. As part of this initiative, Conservation Ontario has asked high growth Conservation Authorities to track and report our review timelines for Section 28 permit issuance on an annual basis using the reporting template provided.
In 2020, the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority received 972 Regulatory review applications. 708 of these reviews resulted in permit issuance. Of the permits issued, 97% of the approvals were issued within the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Policy and Procedure Timelines and Conservation Ontario timelines, with 3% issued outside of the required timelines as shown below.
