Public Lands Administration Regulation Laws Passed

Public Lands Administration Regulation Allows for Sustainable Use of Land

SOURCE: http://www.srd.alberta.ca

The Public Lands Administration Regulation will allow government to better manage our increasingly busy landscape to ensure the activities happening on public land are sustainable. It does not apply to private land. The regulation was passed on August 25, 2011, and will be implemented on September 12, 2011.
The regulation focuses on three key themes:
  • land management;
  • compliance and enforcement; and
  • appeals and dispute resolution.
Consultation was a key step in developing this regulation. We engaged stakeholders, First Nations and Albertans online. The online survey attracted 2,139 responses. Most supported the intent of the regulation.
