Regional Land Use Planning

Regional land use planning is a step by step process where the Yukon government, First Nations, stakeholders and residents develop a blueprint to guide the future use and development of land in their area.  

Regional land use planning facilitates land uses that promote orderly development while considering the values of the land, and providing for economic, social and environmental well being of the residents of the region.

A final regional land use plan provides a broad level vision and goals for the allocation, management and use of land and resources, including renewable, non-renewable and water-based resources within a region.
