Lands Advisory Committee

BHFN established a Lands Advisory Committee (LAC) in 2016 to assist with the development of the Land Code and the Land Use Plan.  The BHFN Land Code requires that a LAC be established to assist Council and Lands Staff with implementation of the Land Code and associated Land Laws.
