Approval Process for ALR Land

Applications to subdivide land within the Agricultural Land Reserve should be submitted through the local government. If the land is adjacent to the Agricultural Land Reserve, the proposal may be referred directly to the Agricultural Land Commission for confirmation of the Agricultural Land Reserve boundaries. Please note: in some areas of the province, the authority to make decisions on land use and subdivision applications within the Agricultural Land Reserve has been delegated to local government pursuant to section 26 of the Agricultural Land Commission Act. As of January 1, 2005 only portions of the Regional Districts of Fraser Fort George and East Kootenay are affected.
