CRD receives draft of agricultural policy

The Cariboo Regional District continues to work on finalizing its 2014 Agricultural Policy, reports the CRD.

At its regular meeting Friday, Aug. 22, the CRD directors received an update on the draft agricultural policy that was originally presented to the board in 2011.

Subsequent discussions with affected representatives from provincial agencies and stakeholders, has resulted in the draft 2014 Agricultural Policy.

Revisions were also prompted by new provincial guidelines and standards related to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), and the need to create a more comprehensive document that would complement the agricultural policies of three newly adopted CRD Official Community Plans, the CRD reports.

The CRD 2004 Implementation Plan and Schedule of the Agriculture/Forestry Review was also examined to ensure that its concept and intent remain relevant and incorporated into the 2014 Agricultural Policy.

The final draft policy will be brought back to a future board meeting for adoption. Further information about this proposed policy is available on the CRD website at cariboord.ca.
