Previous Investigations

Two types of information are provided for previous investigations.

For LCC investigations and reviews (1971 to 1997), the full texts of the final recommendations reports are available from this site, edited to reflect government variations and amendments at the time of approval, and subsequent changes. Scanned versions of the published recommendations maps are also provided. Where final recommendations for an area have been superseded through the recommendations of a subsequent review or investigation, only the most recent final recommendations are provided. The annotated reports therefore provide a record of government-accepted recommendations for public land in these LCC study areas. The Orders in Council that give notice to government departments or public authorities to give effect to accepted recommendations are included where available in 'Additional information'.

For ECC (1997 to 2001) and VEAC investigations (from 2001) the reports are not annotated to reflect government decisions. For the ECC investigations only the final recommendations reports and maps are available from this site at this stage. Note that legislation did not require a government response to ECC reports. For VEAC investigations, all published reports are available. The formal government response is also provided for many VEAC investigations.

For access to or information about LCC, ECC and VEAC reports other than the final recommendations provided here - including resource reports, discussion papers, draft recommendations and final reports of earlier studies - please contact VEAC. A document archive of all reports is scheduled to be available from this website later in 2021.
