What Does The Board Do?
The BVCRB was first established in 1991 to complete the Bulkley Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP), widely regarded as one of British Columbia’s most successful land-use plans. Today, the Board continues to play an important role by advising government on resource management, monitoring resource management plans on crown lands, acting as the vehicle for public input on issues arising from the Land and Resource Management Plan, and reviewing any proposed changes to the Plan.
