Range Land Impact

An approving officer may consider if a subdivision would injuriously affect established amenities of adjacent properties, or unreasonably interfere with farming operations on adjacent properties (Section 86 (1) (C) (i) or (x) of the Land Title Act). Subdivision of land that abuts crown land grazing tenures may be considered in that light. Installation of fencing or retention of existing fencing may be required..

If a subdivision introduces a significant change in land use adjacent to crown land grazing tenures, problems may arise as new lots are developed. A common problem is that of cattle venturing onto residential property. This possibility may not be realized until the resident has suffered loss.
