The Provincial Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) and the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) have worked together to change the way in which the ALC provides its consent for plans that subdivide land in the Agricultural Land Reserve.
Effective March 22, 2022, the ALC will now provide its consent on the Application to Deposit Plan. Version 19 of the Application to Deposit Plan includes a drop down selection for “Approval – Provincial Agricultural Land Commission” on the Schedule of Approving Officers and Provincial Approvers. When selected, the Application to Deposit Plan will be populated with the following signatory block for the ALC:
Applicants must use version 19 of the Application to Deposit Plan form to access the ALC’s approval block. Applications to Deposit Plan that are under preparation on version 18 but not submitted will continue to be accepted as version 18 of the Application to Deposit Plan is not being retired at this time.
Existing ALC Consent letters can still be submitted by appending them to the Application to Deposit Plan with a Declaration Form. For specific form completion instructions please refer to the Directions for Completing EFS Forms
Following publication of version 19 of the Application to Deposit Plan form, relevant supporting documents have been updated:
- Added Application to Deposit Plan version 19 as a form approved for use
- The Agricultural Land Commission can now sign the Application to Deposit Plan form to give consent to a subdivision that lies within the agricultural land reserve
- Amended the notation on plan for block outline monumentation to include a reference to LTSA file number.
