An open house consultation session will be held in Berwick next month to give area residents the opportunity to share their thoughts on what the government should do with Crown land in the western region of the province.
The consultations, announced in December, will help develop a sustainable plan for the 1.5 million acres of land, which includes lands bought from Bowater Mersey Ltd.
Uses being considered for the land include agricultural operations, mineral exploration, renewable energy, wineries, maple syrup production, cranberry growing, tourism and recreation. The province will also consider conserving cultural heritage and biodiversity as well as access to lakes, roads and trails on the lands.
The Berwick session will be held April 3 in the Berwick and District Fire Hall from 5-8 p.m.
