Appeal Decision Issued for Scotian Materials Quarry


Three appeals against a quarry in Halifax Regional Municipality, operated by Scotian Materials Ltd., have been dismissed.

The decision means the company can continue work on a 3.9-hectare quarry in an industrial area on Perrin Drive near Fall River.

The project received environmental approval on June 19. Three groups filed appeals of the decision.

Leo Glavine, acting Minister of Environment, found that Environment Department staff followed appropriate processes in issuing the industrial approval and dismissed the appeals.

The appeal decisions are available at novascotia.ca/nse/issues/goffs-quarry.asp.

Environment Minister Iain Rankin excluded himself from the decision to eliminate the perception of a conflict of interest. During his time in the private sector, before he was elected in 2013, he worked with the president of Scotian Materials.
