Appeals on Approval Received

The Department of Environment has received three appeals on Northern Pulp’s 2015 industrial approval. The deadline for submissions was Thursday, April 9.

Appeals were received from Northern Pulp, Pictou Landing First Nation and a community group called Clean the Pictou Air.

Under the Environment Act, the minister has 60 days, until June 9, to consider the appeals and make a decision.

If an appellant does not agree with the minister’s decision, they can appeal to the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. In the meantime, the mill’s 2015 industrial approval remains in effect.

Appeals are subject to release under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIPOP) process.

The industrial approval can be found at www.novascotia.ca/nse/issues/northern-pulp-boat-harbour.asp .
