Woodlot incentives proposed


Chatham-Kent council is expected to take a detailed look at incentivizing woodlot conservation in Chatham-Kent.

As part of a motion by South Kent’s Ryan Doyle, the councillor is asking that administration prepare a report on the matter for council to be presented in March 2024, outlining potential incentive options to “encourage the preservation of existing woodlots and to encourage the expansion of tree cover across the municipality.”

The motion also proposes additional public consultation on the matter, regarding incentive options.

Earlier this fall, council voted to get rid of a temporary bylaw prohibiting the clear cutting of woodlots that was in place for more than two years.
