One of the principal purposes of Planning for the Crown-Settlement Interface Lands is to assess the state of the art of Interface planning, and to do so through identification and discussion of concrete cases. Case files will be collected into an Interface Planning Casebook that will be available online for review and discussion.  

The Casebook can be accessed at ValleyVision. ValleyVision is a website for residents, planners and developers of British Columbia’s Bulkley Valley. It provides a portal to Bulkley Valley planning activities and a repository for planning-related knowledge and opinions.

The Interface conference and workshops will be the place where the task of identifying and discussing cases will be front and centre; but there is no reason why registrants should not begin the process now, through the magic of the Internet.

If you are aware of an example of a problem with current interface planning, or of an opportunity to improve some aspect of interface planning, please send an email to outlining:

  1. the features of the case;
  2. the opportunity for better planning, if you see the case as presenting such an opportunity, or the problem;
  3. what you take to be potential solutions to the problem you have identified;
  4. what planning principles you consider to be at stake in the case (Link to Principles);
  5. your name (each case description posted on the Interface Planning Casebook facility will bear the name of the person who contributed it).

    Contributions can be written into the email or attached as a Word document. A small picture or PDF file may be included.  Case files should normally be 300 words or less in length, grammatical, and proofread for spelling errors and typos.  Content should be civil and directed towards process or principles rather than persons.  Submissions will not be edited.  Rather, if they depart from appropriate form or content, Interface reviewers will simply ask authors to resubmit with revisions.

    By contributing material to the Interface Planning Casebook, you are confirming that you wrote it yourself, or copied it from the public domain or some similar free resource.  You also agree to allow your contribution to be made available for public viewing on the internet and possible inclusion within one or more publications by the organizers of the June 2010 conference: Planning for the Crown-Settlement Interface Lands.
