A conservation covenant is a voluntary written agreement that allows landowners to permanently protect specified natural features of their land in perpetuity. The covenant is registered on the property’s title at the Land Title Office and binds present and future owners to protect the land’s conservation values. Denman Conservancy Association (DCA) has been approved to hold both conservation covenants and statutory rights-of-way on Denman Island by the BC Provincial Government.
DCA holds eight conservation covenants and related statutory rights-of-way totalling 207 hectares (511 acres). As covenant holder DCA monitors and, in some cases, as described below, manages these covenant areas. See also DCA Covenant Enforcement Policy & Procedure.
