Survey seeks public opinion on land use
Finance and Energy
Those with an interest in the future of land use policies in Prince Edward Island have until October 31 to participate in an online survey.
“We are extremely pleased with the large numbers who have responded to the survey to date, and want to encourage all interested Islanders to share their opinions with us,” said John Handrahan, chair of the Task Force on Land Use Policy. “All Islanders have a stake in the future of land use in the province.”
The survey asks a series of questions about issues such as water quality, preserving landscapes, protecting resource lands and natural areas and building sustainable communities. Those participating in the survey can also provide comments on these and other issues. The survey takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
The task force was established to develop detailed recommendations for land use policies and their implementation. There is no comprehensive provincial land use policy.
The task force hopes to submit its report to government in January.
The survey is available at www.gov.pe.ca/landandlocalgovernance/survey. Paper copies are available by calling (902) 620-3558.
