Government as proponent
The onus is on all proponents to demonstrate in their applications that the proposed land use conforms to all applicable requirements of a plan (zoning, conditions, etc.).
When the GNWT is a proponent, the proponent department will concurrently:
- seek information within the GNWT to support the application
- seek advice from the applicable planning board(s) to ensure they are meeting the intent of the plan(s)
