Regional Land Use Planning: Guidelines on what to expect from the Government of the Northwest Territories – 2016

Government as proponent

The onus is on all proponents to demonstrate in their applications that the proposed land use conforms to all applicable requirements of a plan (zoning, conditions, etc.).

When the GNWT is a proponent, the proponent department will concurrently:

  • seek information within the GNWT to support the application
  • seek advice from the applicable planning board(s) to ensure they are meeting the intent of the plan(s)
