Replacement K1A- Forest Stewardship Plan (2023-2028)

Replacement K1A- Forest Stewardship Plan (2023-2028)

Burns Lake Community Forest Ltd is proposing a replacement Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) for the K1A License. This is initiated by Burns Lake Community Forest to meet legislative requirements.

The Proposed FSP communicated in 2021 and 2022, has been amended to include the landscape impacts of the Tintagel Fire complex. The new FSP is now ready for final ministry submission.

The final stage of implementation is to bring to fruition measurable and variable practice requirements in the replacement of the current Forest Stewardship Plan. In accordance with section 18 of the Forest and Range Practices Act, (FRPA) and section 20 of the Forest Planning and Practices Regulation (FPPR) and Management Plan #4-Forest Program Objectives for Public Consultation and Engagement, the FSP review period is available for public comment until February 18th, 2024. We have proposed a 90-day period to support extra time for review and comment.

This notice supports our communication and engagement around the proceedings of the community Forest K1A license and information is available during regular working hours (8:30 am to 4:30 pm weekdays) or via a private appointment at the following address and/or by sending your request to moc.rofmoclb@ofni.

153 Francois Lake Dr, Burns Lake, BC
