CRD Foodlands Trust Feasibility Study


The goal of this feasibility study is to provide the Capital Regional District (CRD) Planning and Protective Services Committee and CRD Board with a comparative analysis of agricultural land use access models to support a decision on whether the CRD should expand its role in assisting access to land for food production, and if so, how that could best be accomplished. The study was initiated because the Capital Regional District (CRD) has identified the need to assess options for increasing food production by enhancing access to farmland as a community asset for the public good. The Report explores the rationale, business case scenarios and financial summaries for options that would allow local government to increase access to food and farm lands.
