Clause 3 gives Halifax Regional Municipality the benefit of amendments made to the Municipal Government Act and the Assessment Act in the Fall 2008 sitting of the House which were inadvertently left out of the Halifax Regional Municipality Charter.

Clause 4 amends the by-law making authority of the Council with respect to tree cutting.

Clause 5 permits HRM to establish maximum, as well as minimum, street frontage and lot area requirements for lots and minimum, as well as maximum, density of lots.

Clause 6 amends the HRM subdivision by-law authority.

Clause 7 gives HRM the benefit of amendments made to the Municipal Government Act respecting civic numbers.

Clause 8 includes fences in the authority of the Municipal Engineer to remove certain obstructions in relation to streets.

Clause 9 increases the time period in which by-law enforcement personnel may lay a charge for the breach of a land-use by-law or development agreement from six months to two years.

Clause 10 provides that Sections 1 and 3 have effect on and after February 17, 2009.
