79.15. In agricultural zones, every person who wishes to erect a building other than a farm building on his lot shall, in respect of neighbouring farming operations, comply with any standard as to distance, imposed on such farming operations pursuant to any Act, regulation or by-law in force at the time of the erection.
The local municipality shall not issue a building permit where the said standard is not complied with by the owner of the lot contemplated by the application, unless the latter has deposited, for registration purposes, in the office of the registration division concerned, a declaration whereby he waives, in respect of each neighbouring farming operation that is subject to the said standard, the recourses that would have been available to him if he had complied with the standards imposed.
The declaration has the same effect as a real servitude and shall be registered against the lot contemplated by the application and in respect of the lot on which the buildings or infrastructures used for the farming activity subject to the distance standards are situated.
