Develop with Care: Environmental Guidelines for Urban and Rural Land Development in British Columbia

This document is intended to assist people who are involved in planning, implementing, reviewing and/or approving land developments in British Columbia's urban and rural areas. Its primary purpose is to provide province-wide guidelines for the maintenance of environmental values during the development of urban and rural lands. It also provides information on ways that environmental protection and stewardship can benefit the community, the property owner and the developer, as well as the natural environment.
