Land Use Planning

Land use planning is a tool that links the environment, the community, and the economy to help ensure the sustainability of our resources. Planning helps to:

  • integrate environmental, social and economic values;
  • resolve conflicts;
  • build common land use objectives; and 
  • ensure openness and inclusiveness.

Through land use planning, the province recognizes and integrates the needs and interests of a modern and evolving society. If land use decisions are not coordinated, they can lead to resource use pressures. 

Land use planning works with people who are involved with and have a stake in the area, including First Nations and Métis for their traditional and local knowledge that is invaluable to the planning process.  The collection and sharing of knowledge is one way of ensuring that planning processes are understood and endorsed.
