This land management plan establishes clear guidelines for access, protection and use of reclaimed lands in the Luscar and Gregg River mines area in the historic Coal Branch of the Eastern Slopes. The plan enables a "phasing-in" of certain land uses and public access over a number of years. Protecting the reclamation efforts and allowing it time to successfully establish will result in future economic, recreational and ecological benefits.
After considering the input provided by the public during the open house session held on January 27, 2010, Luscar and Gregg River Mines Land Management Plan Working Group completed the plan. It was approved by the department in September 2012.
