This document outlines the siting protocol for wireless facilities in the City of St. John’s.
The City of St. John’s is not the approving authority for wireless facilities; these are regulated under federal jurisdiction by Industry Canada. Local regulations such as municipal zoning cannot override federal jurisdiction, however, the City does review applications for wireless facilities using the St. John’s Development Regulations and this siting protocol to help identify the City’s preferred locations for wireless facilities.
