These Guidelines set clear criteria and establish expectations for planning partners. The Guidelines are part of the GNWT’s strategic framework for land use planning that is currently under development.
Land use plans are purposefully designed to be living documents. Land use changes over time, as do priorities and perspectives, and new information can become available.
In developing a first generation plan there is considerable uncertainty. As such, the GNWT will continue to work with planning partners to innovate and improve how the GNWT reviews and implements land use plans.
