Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) is considering a proposed disturbance standard for temporary seasonal docks and other mooring structures under the Public Lands Administration Regulation. A disturbance standard is a flexible tool that can allow an activity to occur on public land, subject to certain requirements. In May 2020, AEP engaged with municipalities, affected landowners, and other stakeholders on the proposed draft disturbance standard. The first round of engagement sought comments on setback requirements, terminal platform size, boat lift limitations, and the use of accessories on a dock.
AEP is now seeking additional input from Albertans on a revised draft disturbance standard. Please visit AEP’s Mooring Standards Engagement for backgrounder and share your feedback. This survey is open to submissions until December 14, 2020.
