The Municipal Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and typically occur on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  The agenda is available here the week before the meeting.

Please note that while MPC meetings are open to the public, they are not Public Hearings. The most effective way to submit feedback on a particular proposal is in writing in advance of the meeting to the Planning and Development department, who can then attach it to the public agenda package. MPC members may, at their discretion, ask questions of administration or any affected parties relating to the agenda during the meeting.

 

Monday, 16 October, 2017 - 20:00

Although Farm Vehicles (Class 2) are exempt from the provisions of sections 10 and 22 of the NSC (National Safety Code for Motor Carriers) when carrying bales (IF they do not exceed the posted speed limit or 80 km/hr, whichever is less, and the vehicle is not operated onon any highway or portion of a highway except to cross the highway), they are NOT EXEMPT from Section 5(2) of the Cargo Securement Standard which states:

"The cargo securement system shall provide a downward force equal to at least 20% of the weight of an article of cargo if the article is not fully contained within the structure of the vehicle"

What this is saying is that you MUST secure each bale with strap, with a marked Working Load Limit (WWL) of at least 20% of weight or aggregate weight of each bale or stack of bales loaded on any vehicle.

For example, If you have a sinigle bale that weighs 500 kg you would need to secure that bale with a strap marked with a WWL of 100 kg. 

If you have one strap over two bales that weight 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 200 kg. 

If you have a single strap over three bales that weigh 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 300 kg.

The fines for an improperly secured load are up to $776.
