Northern Arm Forage and Pasture Land Development  

Proponent:  Sunshine Investments Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent is proposing to expand an existing farm by approximately 100 hectares in the area of Northern Brook Resource Road and Rowsell’s Lake Road near the community of Northern Arm. The construction will include clearing and grubbing with a commitment to a 50-metre buffer to be maintained around all water bodies. Lime, seed and fertilizer will be applied to the cleared land with no plans to use herbicides. Manure will be stored and applied to the land in association to rotational grazing. The main water supply for livestock throughout the pasture lands will be from artesian wells. The four-year schedule includes having the land cleared and mulched during the 2018-19 season.
