David Broadland Posted April 14 Share Posted April 14 Bill 23, passed by the BC Legislative Assembly on November 23, 2021, introduced Forest Landscape Planning to various forest-related legislation. It is still unclear what this new process entails or what it means for the interested public. Yves Mayrand has written a critical overview of what the new legislation contains. But how "forest landscape plans" and "forest operations plans" will be created and how the public will be able to interact with the process is still vague, if not confusing. The BC Ministry of Forests held an online seminar about the process in June 2022 called "Transitioning to Forest Landscape Planning and Alignment with DRIPA". The seminar was aimed at forest professionals, but for anyone wondering what this new direction means for public interaction with forest planning in BC, the video below contains some hints. For one thing, the new planning process will require licensees to post their plans on a government website, and the public will have access to the information as soon as it is posted. Please let us know what you think of this new direction by the ministry. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
