Alberta Land Stewardship Act
Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA)
The ALSA guides the Alberta Land-use Framework (LUF), which establishes a regional planning approach to manage land and natural resources in the province. The Framework was released in December 2008 and sets out seven land-use regions. The County of Northern Lights is located within the Lower Peace Region, which also includes Mackenzie County, Northern Sunrise County and the Municipal District of Opportunity. The province will, in time, prepare a regional plan for the Lower Peace Region. The Framework establishes key provincial land-use objectives and responsibilities of the Stewardship Minister, Stewardship Commissioner, Land-use Secretariat and Regional Advisory Councils.
