Proponent: Department of Natural Resources

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The Department of Natural Resources has proposed an amendment to the current Crown Five-Year Operating Plan for Forestry Management Districts 4, 5, 6 and 8, (Planning Zone 3). The proposed amendment is near Harvey’s Pond in the western portion of Forest Management District 5, near Gander Bay. The rationale for this amendment is to identify sufficient volumes of timber for commercial operations within the District due to unforeseen land use conflicts. Access is planned via forest access road off the Gander Bay highway with no primary access road construction required. This undertaking will include the harvesting of approximately 23000 m3 of timber and the construction of 3.5 kilometres of secondary access roads. Construction will commence following approval.

  • August 1, 2013 - The undertaking was registered.
  • September 6, 2013 - Deadline for public comments.
  • September 14, 2013 - The minister’s decision is due.
  • September 27, 2013 - The minister announced that the project is released.
