Application for an Earth Removal Special Permit
Lackey Dam Road
Present was James Pyne of Pyne Sand & Stone Company. The parcel in question is five (5) acres. The three land owners want to bring the five (5) acres down to level grade with the surrounding area.

The conditions to be added are the high ground water condition and the operation plan. This parcel falls under the Aquifer Protection Bylaw.
