Township of Langley, British Columbia
The Township of Langley (population ~134,000) is a district municipality in southwestern British Columbia. Not to be confused with the nearby City of Langley, the Township extends south from the Fraser River to the U.S. border, and west of the City of Abbotsford.
The Township is largely agricultural but has recently experienced substantial development. It has three main interests in natural asset management. First, the Township wants to develop a baseline of the natural assets on which it relies and/or manages, and related to this, an understanding of the interconnectivity between built infrastructure and natural assets. Second, the Township wants to build a foundation for a natural capital asset management plan, which it is planning on developing beginning in 2021. As part of this, the Township also wants to complete tasks highlighted in the Strategic Asset Management Plan and Climate Action Strategy.
