Webinar: Moving Past the Tipping Point — Alberta's New Land Use System

Dec 9 2009 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Alberta's lands have been subject to ever-increasing pressures by population growth, industrial expansion and competition for multiple uses on the same pieces of land.

In its Land Use Framework, the province stated:"What worked for us when our population was only one or two million will not get the job done with four, and soon five million. We have reached a tipping point, where sticking with the old rules will not produce the quality of life we have come to expect. If we want our children to enjoy the same quality of life that current generations have, we need a new land-use system." Read more »

Tough Choices Ahead for South Saskatchewan Regional Plan

15 Oct 2009

If the quality of our environment in Southern Alberta is to be maintained in future, then the province's South Saskatchewan Regional Plan will have to make some hard choices in determining limits and thresholds to human activity.

This is the principal finding in a new Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) report released today. The report, Conservation Recommendations for the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan, makes a series of recommendations to the South Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council, as the Alberta government's Land‐Use Framework planning process begins to unfold in southern Alberta.

Alberta Land-use Planning Legislation Introduced

Since the release of the Draft Land-use Framework (LUF) in May 2008 several parallel processes have been taking place to advance the LUF from a policy initiative into a functioning land use management framework.

A collaborative of over ten non-government organizations across the province has coordinated efforts to shape these processes and will continue to do. Visit Alberta by Design or our member sites for updates. 

1. Alberta Land-use Planning Legislation Introduced

New legislation is a big step forward but leaves much to Cabinet's discretion

On April 28th, the Alberta government tabled the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA), Bill 36. The bill is a step toward the system of land-use planning promised by Alberta's Land-use Framework. The bill empowers the provincial government with new powers to guide regional land-use planning - a step away from conflicting decision-making bodies and the dominance of municipal planning on the landscape. Key amendments, however, will be required to make the ALSA effective.
