62. The council of the regional county municipality may, by a majority vote of its members, prohibit new uses of the land, new structures, applications for cadastral operations or the parcelling out of lots by alienation.
However, no such prohibition may apply to (1) new uses of the land, structures, applications for cadastral operations or the parcelling out of lots by alienation
(a) for agricultural purposes on land under cultivation;
(b) for the purposes of the installation, by a municipality, of water or sewer services in an existing public street in execution of an order made under the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2);
(c) for the purposes of the installation of electricity, gas, telecommunication or cable distribution networks;
(d) for the purposes of a forest management activity or of a wildlife management activity on lands in the public domain;
(2) applications for cadastral operations required by a declaration of co-ownership made under article 1038 of the Civil Code of Québec (Statutes of Québec, 1991, c. 64) or by the alienation of part of a building requiring the partitioning of the land on which it is situated.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the council may provide that new uses of the land, new structures, applications for cadastral operations and the parcelling out of lots by alienation constitute classes of activities, establish subclasses or divide the territory of the regional county municipality. In such a case, the council may impose prohibitions that apply to one, several or all of the classes, subclasses or parts of territory or that vary according to class, subclass or part of territory or to any combination comprised of a class or subclass and a part of territory.
As soon as practicable after the passage of the resolution by which the council makes the decision under the first paragraph or changes or repeals it, the secretary-treasurer shall transmit a certified copy thereof to the Minister and to every municipality whose territory is comprised in that of the regional county municipality, and shall publish notice of the date of passage of the resolution in a newspaper circulated in the territory of the regional county municipality.
