Administrative Review Information
Some proposed projects that fall within the Commission’s jurisdiction are of such small scale as to cause no conceivable threat to any interest of the Wetlands Act or Town Bylaw. Such projects should not undergo a formal hearing and can be reviewed and approved by the Conservation Administrator. This process is intended to reduce the workload of the Commission, and allow the Commission to spend time on larger projects, which pose a greater threat to wetland resources.
