Purpose of the land-use framework

The Land-use Framework (LUF) sets out an approach to managing our province's land and natural resources to achieve Alberta’s long-term economic, environmental and social goals. The LUF establishes seven new land-use regions and calls for the development of a regional plan for each.

LUF is about:

  • improving provincial leadership on land-use issues through policy direction and guidelines;
  • taking a new approach to manage public and private lands and natural resources to achieve Alberta's long-term economic, environmental and social goals;
  • increasing certainty for industry through integration and coordination of provincial policy and aligned planning and decision-making;
  • encouraging stewardship and conservation on public and private lands;
  • clarifying roles and responsibilities for land-use decisions at all levels; and
  • improved information sharing.
