Section 510 of the Local Government Act allows
Regional Districts to acquire for park purposes up
to 5% of the land being developed. Land designated for park under this
Section should be shown as “park” on the subdivision plan.
Payment in Lieu of Dedication:
If the Regional District has Letters Patent for the park function, the landowner
has the option of paying money in lieu of the 5% dedication.
Dedication of Linear Parkland
It may be in the public's
best interest to establish a strip adjacent to a stream or river as Crown
Land pursuant to Section 85 of the Land Title Act and
Section 510 of
the Local Government Act.
A park does not qualify as a road.
