31.1. Notwithstanding section 26, a person may, without the authorization of the commission, erect one residence on one lot or on several contiguous lots, or on lots that would be contiguous according to sections 28 and 29, if the lots are vacant, not subject to rights recognized under Chapter VII and owned by the person, provided the area of the lot or contiguous lots is or forms an area of not less than 100 hectares. The person may use for that purpose an area not exceeding one-half hectare.
In order to do so, the person shall, beforehand, file at the record office of the commission a statement accompanied with the land title and a plan describing the area on which the residence will be erected.
The erection of a residence under this section does not entail that the lot or part of lot on which the residence is erected is exempt from the application of sections 28 to 30.
