ALR Boundary Reviews

The purpose of an ALR boundary review is to refine the ALR boundaries in a particular geographic area so that they encompass land that is both capable and suitable for agricultural use.

Responsibility for revising the ALR’s boundaries rests with the ALC. This role, which the ALC may exercise proactively by way of boundary reviews, is linked directly to the ALC’s responsibility to preserve agricultural land. A boundary review is a superior method for “fine-tuning” ALR boundaries than adjudicating hundreds of disparate applications. The ALR will have greater integrity, and fewer applications will be generated, where boundaries are proactively reviewed to assess whether land is, or is not, appropriately designated as ALR land.
