12. The policy must provide, in respect of any instrument referred to in the second paragraph of section 4, for the dissemination of a text pertaining to its main foreseeable effects. In the case of an instrument referred to in subparagraph 3 of that paragraph, the policy must also provide for the dissemination of an explanatory text, which must set out any project for the construction or alteration of an immovable with which the municipality is already seized and that the instrument is intended to allow. The explanatory text must also describe the contribution, if applicable, of the instrument and the project to the directions of the planning program.
Where an instrument applies to only part of the territory of the municipality, the information disseminated includes a map on which that part of the territory is delimited.
Information useful to the conduct of a consultative or active participation measure must be disseminated before the beginning of the measure so that interested persons have a reasonable time period to examine the measure.
In all cases, the aim of the policy must be the dissemination of clear, objective and neutral information.
