Agricultural Impact Assessment

Under certain circumstances the province has identified that non-agricultural uses in Prime Agricultural Areas may be permitted, provided it can be demonstrated that the proposal addresses certain criteria.

In these circumstances an Agricultural Impact Assessment would be prepared, identifying and assessing any impacts to the agricultural area and provide mitigation measures, if necessary.

The Agricultural Operations Map featured on this page provides a detailed inventory of agricultural uses and operations within the study area. This mapping is one of the many tools used in assessing possible impacts to agricultural land.
