MINISTER ZONING ORDER (MZO):

Arguably the development process can be lengthy and tedious. The provincial government has introduced a method by which development applications are fast-tracked and circumvent the normal development approval process in situations where this is required. These are known as Minister Zoning Orders or "MZO's". While the idea does appear to have some merit I could see this being abused in other cases where there are close ties between a developer and a political party. More broadly, fee simple property rights within every community are a cornerstone of our society. Residents should have a say with what occurs in their area particularly when they are financially vested. An MZO on the surface does not appear to impede fee simple property rights. However, I believe it has potential to be a precursor for potential erosion of property rights over time. #recg #property #realestate #development #community #architecture #society #developer #law #propertyrights #commercialrealestate
