​​Lower Peace Region

Status: Regional plan development is not started. The process to provide feedback on amendments to the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan to incorporate the regulatory details of the Bistcho Lake Sub-regional Plan is complete.

Amendments to the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan will include the Bistcho Lake sub-regional plan.

The Bistcho Lake sub-region is located in the Lower Peace Region, and at this time does not have a regional plan.  For this reason, the Government of Alberta proposes to incorporate the regulatory details of the Bistcho Lake Sub-Regional Plan in amendments to the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan as an interim step until the Lower Peace Regional Plan comes into effect and can incorporate the regulatory details. The Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA) allows a regional plan to “manage an activity, effect, cause of an effect or person outside a planning region until a regional plan comes into force with respect to the matter or person.”

Opportunities to provide feedback on amendments to the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan to incorporate regulatory details for the Bistcho Lake sub-regional plan closed on July 8, 2024. For more information, visit the LARP Amendments page​.
