Burin quarry registered for environmental assessment

BDC Construction is proposing to develop a 2.2 hectare quarry in Burin.

The project was registered with the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment for environmental assessment on Monday.

The quarry would be accessed via an existing road off Green Hill Road and would require construction of a new road, roughly 15 metres long by 10 metres wide, to access the site.

The company would use the quarry to supply gravel and slate to the local market for road and driveway construction and land development.

The deadline for public comments is Oct. 24, 2017, and Municipal Affairs and Environment Minister Eddie Joyce’’s decision is due by Nov. 2.
