A Review of the Early Forest Stewardship Plans Under FRPA
The former planning-based regulatory regime for forest and range practices in British Columbia is being replaced by a new regime that is described as results based. Under the new regime, only one plan requires public review and government approval—the forest stewardship plan. The Forest Practices Board examined the attributes of 15 of the earliest forest stewardship plans (FSP). The Board decided to identify potential concerns now in the hope that these comments will be constructive and will help to influence the content of the many plans currently in development.
