Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The Gambo Pond Cottage Development Plan was recently approved to control unplanned cottage development in this area. The Gambo Pond Cottage Development Planning Area is located near the Trans Canada Highway, adjacent to the Town of Gambo. Phase I of this project involves the development of twelve new recreational cottage lots. Each unserviced lot will be 0.4 hectares in area, totaling approximately 4.8 hectares for the project as a whole. The lots are located approximately 8.5 kilometres from the Trans Canada Highway on Pond View Road. No new road construction is necessary for this proposed development, however an estimated 1.3 kilometres of existing road will be upgraded. There is no time frame for cottage construction (will be the decision of individual lot owners). If approved, road upgrading will begin in mid August 2010 and continue until mid September 2010.
