Disclosure Requests 

What is "disclosure"?

Disclosure is a copy of any evidence that the Crown and Police have collected from the offence committed.

Where do I find my offence number?

Your offence number is located at the top right corner of your ticket, starting with ICON number, 0661 OR 0660. This number consists of seven (7) digits and one (1) letter.

 

Example offence number: 0661-1234567Z

Notice

If your offence number is on a Notice of Trial, it will read like this example: 0661-999-00-1234567Z-00.

How long does it take to get disclosure?

Disclosure takes a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks to get back from the Officer, so make your request well in advance of your next court date. Please also ensure that the contact information you provided on your request form (email address, phone number etc.) is clear and legible. 

Where do I pick up my disclosure?

Disclosure is provided by:

  • Email;

  • In person at Town Hall

When providing your email address, please double check any spelling or clarity so that your disclosure is provided to you correctly.

Make sure your contact information is clear and legible. 

I am still waiting to get disclosure, what should I do?

If you have not received your disclosure within 6 to 8 weeks of your request, you should:

  1. Submit a second request.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Application fee cover?

The non-refundable application fee covers the costs of processing the application, including:

  • review of the application and creation of a new file;
  • title search;
  • circulations to various departments;
  • correspondence with the application; and
  • any required notices under the Land Sale By-Law.

If I make an Application, will the Town sell me the lands?

The application is a request to the Town to consider the sale of the lands. It does not guarantee the Town will sell any lands. As a landowner, the Town has complete discretion to sell or retain its own lands for any reason.

What other costs will I incur?

In addition to the non-refundable application fee, the applicant will be required to cover the following costs (as applicable):

  • cost of a reference plan;
  • cost to appraise the value of the lands;
  • Council report fee (where the proposed sale requires a report to Council);
  • By-law fee (where the land to be sole is a road);
  • agreement fee;
  • Teraview document fee; and
  • search and registration costs.

What is the value of the land I am interested in?

The Town does not maintain active valuations on Town-owned land. Unfortunately, we will not be able to advise you of an approximate value of the land you are interested in purchasing. The fair market value of the land will be determined by an appraiser with an Accredited Appraiser Canadian Institute designation.
