Proposed revised approach to public land use planning

Public land use planning is the responsibility of the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles. It must prepare public land use plans (PLUP) in collaboration with affected government departments. The approach for developing these plans describes the entire land use plan process and its guiding principles.

A review of the current approach to land use planning was initiated in 2017 with the following objectives:

  • Make the public land use planning process more participatory and transparent
  • Place greater emphasis on the concerns of communities
  • Increase the coherence of activities on public land
  • Simplify the contents of PLUPs.

The proposed revised approach to public land use planning  that is the subject of this consultation contains the following:

  • A presentation of the context of public land use and the role of PLUPs (points 1 and 2 of the consultation document)
  • The government’s objectives for public land use planning (points 3 and 4)
  • The steps of the land use planning approach (point 5)
  • PLUP contents (point 6)
  • PLUP implementation (point 7)
  • Conclusion
