United States Border
When a subdivision adjoins the United States border, the Approving
Officer may request the developer to return to the Crown an 18-metre strip
of land along the border. Alternatively, the Approving Officer may consider a covenant
restricting building on the 18-metre strip. There
is no legal requirement to obtain this strip of land; however it is
useful if a right of way is granted along the Canadian side of the border.
The covenant restricting building would facilitate the right of way.
