Bay Bulls Forage Farm Development

Proponent: Oceanview Farm

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent intends to develop land for forage production in the Bay Bulls-Witless Bay Line area on the Avalon Peninsula. Approximately 20 hectares of land within each of three Crown land leases, totalling 64 hectares of land, will be developed. The development of these forage fields will require the removal of all vegetation including stumps and stones, levelling, addition of soil amendments, and planting of forage seeds such as grasses, legumes, and grains. No buildings or other constructed farm infrastructure will be associated with this project. Land development will take place over approximately five to seven years.

The undertaking was registered on July 11, 2017; the deadline for public comments is August 21, 2017; and the minister’s decision is due by August 25, 2017.
