The Nova Scotia Department of the Environment (NSE) approved Scotian Materials 2015 application. It was revoked less than 2 months later. Four appeals were filled including one on behalf of the Stop the Fall River Quarry community group, read full appeal. Our appeal is pending, and Scotian Materials has appealed the revocation. Meanwhile, Scotian Materials has a third application being reviewed.
Many of you are on our emailing list already but for those of you who are not, please email us ASAP to be added. firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we try to share every detail of what is happening, it can be a lot of work and we don’t want you to miss out on any information. Being on this page and on the email list guarantees you will know everything, especially things we wish to keep inside the group.
As this new week starts, keep up with your letters and emails. Email/call the Premier, the Minister of the Environment, your MLA. We have to keep the pressure on and we need to document our opposition.
We need to stand up as a community and make it clear that quarries, asphalt and concrete plants are not welcome in our residential community.
