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

Communication and coordination


Effective communication and coordination is essential to meet the Land Use and Sustainability Framework principles of being coordinated, collaborative, and transparent. This section provides information on how the GNWT will meet these principles.

Public meetings and hearings

The planning boards sometimes call public hearings and meetings. Hearings and meetings are a vital part of the process for gathering information and informing the public of choices at hand. The GNWT will attend and participate in all hearings and public meetings. The Land Use Planning Unit coordinates the GNWT’s participation.

Communications between planning partners

The GNWT will communicate and collaborate with other approval authorities to discuss, address, or seek clarity on technical and substantive issues as they arise during review of a land use plan or proposed amendment.
