AGGREGATE APPROVALS AND RESTORATION
2006 - 2009
MHBC provided planning and project coordination services for this project that was approved in 2009. The project team successfully resolved issues related to the proposed haul road and neighbours concerns and gained support of the local Township Council.
Additional planting details and woodland rehabilitation areas were identified in consultation with the Region of Waterloo and Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) so that the final rehabilitation of the site achieved the goals set out by MNR. Rehabilitation was coordinated between the proposed operation and the existing adjacent pit operation so that the end result was a larger woodland with a more diverse function. The forested area complemented the surrounding properties, seed bank storage was implemented, and forest removal was phased.
