TA_CROWN_LEASES_SVW - A Crown Land Lease is a type of land tenure issued under the Land Act. A Land Act Lease is issued where long term tenure is required, where substantial improvements are proposed, and/or where definite boundaries are required in order to avoid land use and property conflicts. The tenure holder is granted the exclusive use and enjoyment of the area. The tenure holder also has the right to exclude or charge the public for use of the land and/or improvements, when this is consistent with the terms of the lease. Crown Leases require a (cadastral) survey prior to issuance

TENURE_TYPE TNRTP VARCHAR2 35 Identifies the nature and extent of legal rights conveyed and utilizes a distinct legal instrument (contract) to do so. Term lengths, exclusivity of use or cancellation provisions may be characteristics distinguishing one type from another.

For example, TRANSPORTATION indicates that the tenure will be used for activites such as a road or public wharf.
TENURE_SUBPURPOSE TNRSBPRPS VARCHAR2 35 A subcategory of a tenure purpose. Like Purposes, Subpurposes are established through policy, and each has a body of policy governing its use. For example, PUBLIC WHARF is a subpurpose of the TRANSPORTATION purpose.
CROWN_LANDS_FILE CRWNLNDSFL VARCHAR2 15 A unique seven-digit number generated by Crown Land Management offices to identify a disposition of Crown Land. This number is the basis for the ORCS number under which it will be filed and is commonly used in correspondence and physical files. For example, a file number might identify a specific Aquaculture Lease or a set of Right of Way tenures.
TENURE_DOCUMENT TNRDCMNT VARCHAR2 50 The unique number assigned to the Document which forms the agreement between an individual or company and the provincial government for an interest in crown land. For example, 515744 is the tenure document number for a Right of Way agreement for the purpose of an Electric Power Line
TENURE_EXPIRY TNRXPR DATE 7 The date that a tenure agreement ceases to be in effect. The tenure expiry date is initialized to equal the commencement date plus the tenure term, but may be adjusted later for various reasons.
TENURE_LOCATION TNRLCTN VARCHAR2 1000 A brief text description that identifies the position of a tenure at or relative to known geographic features such as a city or town, a lake, a river, etc. For example, CAMPBELL RIVER may be the closest well known location to a Private Moorage Lease.
