Local Area Plans

Local Area Planning
Local area planning is a form of land use planning on behalf of unicorporated or rural areas outside of municipalities for private land and Yukon Land. Planning can also include First Nation Settlement Land if undertaken jointly with First Nations.

Land use plans are policy documents that guide development and land use in a particular area. They contain maps that show how lands are to be designated or classified and contain policies outlining how the land in each of these areas may be used. Local area plans cover relatively small areas, are fairly detailed in nature, and primarily focus on rural settlement issues rather than resource management and landscape level issues that might be addressed in regional, subregional and district land use planning.

Land Planning Branch has developed, in conjunction with local area residents, Local Area Plans for the following areas.
