This Policy Brief proposes the establishment of a CRD Farmland Conservation and Access Program to permanently secure regional farmland for agricultural use and allow access to farmers at affordable rates.
The first section of this paper defines the nature and purpose of Farmland Conservation and Access Programs. The middle two sections describe the current situation in the CRD with respect to farmland conservation, and identify why the region needs a Farmland Conservation and Access Program. The two final sections of the paper look at how such a program could be funded and recommends ‘Next Steps’ for the CRD to move towards the establishment of a Farmland Conservation and Access Program.
