Title: Land Management Framework Project


1
Land Management Framework Project
  • Phase 1 Summary

2
Phase 1 Goals
  • Review existing land use policy and environmental
    legislation to identify gaps
  • Based on that review, recommend a Land Management
    Framework that would create consistent policy
    for the BH moraine
  • Develop an Initial Implementation Plan to
    facilitate municipal adoption of the Framework

3
Phase 1 Deliverables
  • Comparison of MDP, LUB and non-statutory policies
  • Review of provincial/federal environmental law to
    identify gaps and opportunities
  • Comparative MDP and LUB maps
  • Land management framework format, performance
    indictor selection process, and implementation
    plan

4
Planning Review - Summary
  • Although all counties have environmental goals,
    objectives and policies, the approach and level
    of detail varies considerably
  • References to BH moraine area not consistent in
    all policies (only in recently revised MDPs)
  • Where reference exists, protection does not
    include all of moraine within jurisdiction
  • Environmental protection measures variable in
    detail and force of law (in policy, vs. MDP or
    LUB)

5
Environmental Legislation Review
  • Main questions
  • What laws apply to development in municipalities?
  • How is federal/provincial legislation typically
    applied in development situations?
  • Do municipalities have jurisdiction to develop
    their own environmental by-laws and policies?

6
Legislative Review - Summary
  • Federal and provincial environmental law
    administers individual resources, including those
    impacted by development
  • Management based on use or access (permitting) or
    conservation (enforcement) but at provincial or
    national scale
  • EIA used for larger developments, or those
    triggering permitting new principle, based on
    comprehensive view of environment
  • Small, local projects and environmental resources
    may not be considered under EIA or mgmt law

7
Legislative Review - Summary
  • MGA outlines municipal powers with respect to
    environment in 3 contexts
  • Hazard lands (provision prevents development)
  • Wetlands, parkland (ER/MR)
  • Lands of local conservation significance
    (Conservation easement, subdivision mgmt
    provision)
  • Most municipalities use the first two options,
    few use the third
  • MGA offers broad opportunities to manage
    environment, provided it is fair and reasonable,
    and for the common good

LMA Analysis Summary
  • Extent of protection of the Blue and Yellow LMAs
    under current MDPs and LUBs varies in scope and
    means
  • Two methods used
  • Create special, protective zones within BH
    moraine
  • Create general restrictions addressing resources
    of concern

13
LMA Analysis - Conclusions
  • Ideally, a Land Management Framework will
    incorporate both methods, in consistent way
  • Protective zones around Blue LMAs
  • General guidelines for sensitive development
    throughout moraine

14
Land Management Framework
  • Bottom-up approach
  • Identify best practices define ecological
    function zones
  • Implement internal/public awareness programs
  • Integrate into LUBs
  • Support revision of MDPs

15
Environmental Indicators
  • Objective
  • Monitor success of framework in assisting
    municipalities to incorporate Landscape
    Management Principles into planning practice
  • Benefits
  • Provides accountability, continuous improvement,
    and information for communication, budgeting and
    resource allocation, strategic planning.

16
What is a Good Indicator?
  • Relevant
  • Reliable
  • Responsive
  • Credible
  • Unbiased
  • Useful
  • Timely
  • Comparable
  • Outcome oriented
  • Cost effective

17
Implementation Plan
  • Task 1 Development of the Framework
  • Task 2 Internal/public information and
    monitoring
  • Task 3 Adoption of land use policies and
    practices
  • Step 4 Adoption into statutory documents

22
Deliverables
  • Maps of Ecological Function Zones (EFZs)
  • EBPs applicable to EFZs and key resources
  • Performance Measurement Implementation Strategy

23
Ecological Function Areas
  • Groundwater Recharge/ Discharge Areas
  • Habitat Connectivity Corridors
  • Surface Water Drainage/ Connectivity
  • Core Biodiversity Areas
  • Airsheds

24
EFZ Modeling Process
  • BHI GIS WG
  • Updated vegetation inventory
  • ER/MR/CE mapping
  • GW recharge/dischargeothers

Updated LMA Map
  • Fort Air Partnership
  • Air quality monitoring data
  • Other Sources
  • NRCAN Hydrology
  • PFRA Land Cover
  • Watersheds

EFZ Maps
