Prior Declaration

Posted to billboards at the town hall and at the site

The approved, prior declaration is required to be posted to billboards at the site and at town hall of the commune in which the site is located.

These formalities mark the beginning of the period allotted to third parties to legally contest the prior declaration, if they consider that it is liable to jeopardize or contravene the urban planning regulations.

Posting to billboards at the town hall

In the 8 days following express or tacit (unwritten) delivery of the prior declaration, the administration of the commune will post to billboards at the town hall an extract of the prior declaration to remain posted for a minimum of 2 months.

Posting to billboards at the site

The owner of the prior declaration is required to post to billboards at the site an extract of his site approval, and this is required to remain posted for the duration of the construction project.

This billboard posting should be in the form of a display panel that is visible from the public thoroughfare. The following information must be provided:

  • The name of the beneficiary
  • The type of project and the land area it covers
  • The address of the municipal office where the project file can be viewed

The absence of billboard posting at the site is a Class 5 violation for which a fine is payable.

Third-party action opposing approval of the prior declaration
