Municipal Consent/Road Cut permits

The Township's Entranceway Bylaw regulates road activity in the Township of Edwardsburgh Cardinal. Except for emergency work, no person shall undertake a road cut on a Township Road without first obtaining a Municipal Consent/Road Cut Permit from the Township to do so.  

What is Municipal Consent?

A Municipal Consent (MC) is the municipality's authorization for a Utility Company to occupy a specific location within the Municipality's Right-Of-Way (ROW). MC's are only issued to utility companies who have the authority to construct, operate, and maintain their infrastructure within the ROW as established through legislation, a Municipal Access Agreement, or a Franchise Agreement.

All projects within the Municipal right-of-way are subject to on-site inspections by The Township of Edwardsburgh Cardinal, Manager of Public Works and must comply with Ontario Provincial Standards Specifications (OPSS 510) 

When is Municipal Consent Required?

All proposed new utility installations or any work done by a Utility Company within the municipal ROW require MC from the Township Public Works Department. Chose one of the following options to submit your application:
