Implementation of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan in Forest Development Plans

The Forest Practices Board (the Board) received a complaint that the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan (CCLUP) was not being properly implemented as required by the Forest Practices Code. The CCLUP is the first formally approved land-use plan for the province that, in its entirety, is a policy document intended to guide resource management. To increase legal certainty that forest development plans will address key forest management issues, government declared parts of the land use plan to be a “higher level plan.” Under the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act and related regulations (the Code), forest development plans must be consistent with the higher level plan portion of the CCLUP.
