Land Use Planning
Posted July 8th, 2008 by Mat
The Atlin Taku region remains one of the only areas of the province yet to complete a land use plan. Land use plans increase certainty regarding resource conservation and use, and form the foundation for balanced solutions that meet economic, environmental, and social needs.

The Landscape Values Institute is a non-profit consortium of international researchers and planners interested in advancing knowledge about landscape values to improve land allocation and management. Landscape value and special place mapping is a planning technique whose principles are grounded in sustainable land use and environmental protection, meaningful public participation, and the inclusion of multiple values in land use decision making.
Within the web site you will find numerous examples of applications,methods, and tools for mapping and analyzing landscape values and special places. You will also find resources to help design and implement landscape value mapping for a variety of planning applications.
