Hazardous Lands

Building on hazardous lands can mean loss of life and property

Hazardous land is an area that could be unsafe for development because of naturally occurring process associated with flooding, erosion, dynamic beaches, unstable soils, or unstable bedrock.

The potential for severe flooding or catastrophic failures in some areas of unstable soil and unstable bedrock warrant specific studies to determine the extent of these hazardous lands, and therefore the potential for development to be undertaken safely. Conservation Authorities regulate these hazardous lands based on the conclusions and recommendations of such studies.
