Can I close and purchase a crown road that traverses land held under lease?
Even if an application for closure of a Crown road is approved, sale of the land may not be approved if it will remove legal access to crown land or sever crown land. Where the land traversed by the Crown road is a perpetual lease, the holder should be required to convert the lease to freehold. In some instances, the closed road may be sold to the adjoining holder or, if it is considered beneficial in the interests of land management, the closed road may be added to the lease.
- I currently lease land for crop production and would like to purchase equipment for harvesting. Would I be eligible under the beginning farmer program?
- Does the Crown Road Purchase Fee Schedule cover applications for the closure of Crown roads that are not held under Enclosure Permit (EP)?
- What if I want to purchase or lease a piece of Council owned land or property?
