Developing a Community Land Use Plan

Presenting Organization
National Aboriginal Lands Managers Association (NALMA)

Community land use planning (LUP) is the process of allocating lands, community resources, facilities, and services with a view to maintain and improve the physical environment and the economic and social conditions of a community. This process helps to enable First Nations to reach unique goals for their lands, ensure sustainable development, affirm rights, establish community values on the development of their lands, and determine the future use of natural resources. This workshop will give an overview of community land use planning, and guide participants through the process of LUP development.

What Participants will Learn by Attending 
Participants will learn:

  • Land Use Planning (LUP) overview and basics
  • The process of LUP development and implementation
  • LUP considerations for Reserve lands and Traditional Territory
