Contaminated Site Remediation

Effective February 1, 2021, the PRRD is mandated by the provincial government to participate in the site identification process. You can get more information about the process here.

Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR)

Development proposals affecting property within the ALR may require the approval of the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC). Before the ALC will review an application for subdivision, non-farm use within the ALR or exclusion from the ALR, the application must be supported by the PRRD. Follow this link to view current ALR applications and past decisions.

Provincial Government Referrals

As an important stakeholder in the region the PRRD also responds to a number of referrals from provincial government agencies. This is an opportunity to ensure that the policies of the PRRD are considered in government agency decisions.
