The Government of Alberta announced last week that consultations for the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan will begin in November and be held in multiple locations across central and southern Alberta.

Municipalities, stakeholders and members of the public are invited to attend consultations and encouraged to offer their input.  The consultations build on the work of the South Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council, which included two rural municipal representatives and provided the Government of Alberta with an advisory document promoting recommendations for consideration as the South Saskatchewan regional plan is being developed.   As per those recommendations, work on the land-use plan for southern Alberta will focus on water, economic development and conservation needs.

The Government of Alberta’s information bulletin and consultation schedule are available here and an online workbook has also been made available as an alternate method of providing feedback. Information obtained through consultations will be considered in the development of a draft regional plan for the South Saskatchewan Region.

This will be the second in seven regional plans that will be developed under the Land-use Framework. The Government of Alberta recently approved the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan which came into effect in September 2012.

More information on regional plan development to date and the current consultation process is available by visiting www.landuse.alberta.ca.
