Division I – General
§2 – Strips of woodland
Sections 7 to 10 do not apply to the holder of a forestry permit issued for public utility works.
- To reconcile the various activities that take place in the forest
A person who holds a forestry permit may carry out the forest development activities required for public utility works in the strip of woodland surrounding the places and territories mentioned in sections 7 to 10 without applying the standards prescribed by those sections.
The Minister responsible for applying the Sustainable Forest Development Act specifies which forest development activities are authorized in the forestry permit and sets the conditions to be met when they are carried out.
The Sustainable Forest Development Act states that a forestry permit is required to carry out certain forest development activities in forests in the domain of the State (section 73). The Act allows the Minister to issue a permit authorizing the holder to carry out the forest development activities specified on the permit, on the conditions determined by the Minister (section 74).
