The Department of Municipal Affairs is conducting a review of the current Lands Act and its service delivery model. The Lands Act guides the management and allocation of the province's Crown lands.
To ensure a comprehensive approach to the review a Review Committee was established which comprises professionals with expertise in the areas of law, policy and process improvement. The terms of reference of the Review Committee can be found here: http://www.ma.gov.nl.ca/lands/pdf/lands_act_reference.pdf
An important aspect of this review is consultation with the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and stakeholders. Consultation will help the Review Committee in developing informed recommendations on how to modernize the Act and make the Crown lands application process simpler and the service delivery model more effective.
Public sessions were held in the following communities from March 19 to April 7, 2015.
