Land Planning

Marsh Lake local area plan

The Kwanlin Dün First Nation Self-Government Agreement provides for partnership with the Government of Yukon to undertake a cooperative local area planning process. A local area plan is a document that guides government land-use decisions. It will include maps that designate different areas for different land uses. Planning these areas together minimizes actual and potential land use conflicts. Although each government has the right to make decisions independently on their own lands, it is recognized by both parties that there is great value in a joint planning process with a shared vision.

Draft Local Area Plan

Government of Yukon and Kwanlin Dün First Nation are currently finalizing the local area plan.
