Land Use Contract Termination

Is your property affected by a Land Use Contract?

LUCs were legally enabled for a brief period from 1972 to 1978 only, under the then Municipal Act, now Local Government Act. Landowners or developers applied for an LUC via a bylaw to create tailor-made regulations for specific lands. This differed from general zones contained in a typical zoning bylaw. Most LUCs are more specific but also more restrictive than zoning. LUCs are registered on a land title and take precedence over zoning or subdivision regulations on that land.

Methane Oxidation Beds & Emissions Reporting

The installation of methane oxidation beds at six landfills (Barriere, Clearwater, Chase, Heffley Creek, Logan Lake and Lower Nicola) in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District is a key component in helping the TNRD acheive Carbon Neutrality. Methane oxidation can lead to significant removal of landfill methane, and thus has the potential to earn greenhouse-gas credits. The TNRD has measured and reported carbon emissions to the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program since 2010 and has taken measures to reduce corporate emissions.
