Crown Zone 5 Five-Year Operating Plan Amendment

Proponent: Department of Fisheries and Land Resources

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent has submitted an amendment to the Forest Management District 10 (2016-2020) Five-Year Operating Plan. Forest Management District 10 is in Crown Zone 5. The amendment includes the construction of a 2.5 kilometre primary forest access road near harvest block CC10068 and approximately 17 kilometres west of the Town of Point Leamington. The amendment is required in order to minimize the amount of road construction required to access merchantable timber in Forest Management District 9. This reduction is possible by linking the road network proposed in this amendment and the extension of an approved road. The amendment will reduce the amount of road construction by 11 kilometres as well as reduce operating costs and trucking distance.
