Oxford Homes is developing a two phase, 36 unit estate subdivision near Goodwood, Ontario.
Working as part of a larger project team, RiverStone completed the background information review and consultation with approval agencies (i.e., TRCA, Durham Region, MNRF, etc.).
Our ecologists conducted the necessary field surveys to complete a Natural Heritage Evaluation (NHE) and impact assessment, covering vegetation communities, wildlife, stream habitats, and species at risk.
RiverStone worked with multiple agency ecologists and planners to implement mitigation and restoration plans designed to protect natural features, and restore areas adjacent to a Provincially Significant Wetland in order to obtain approval for development of the site.
RiverStone successfully obtained permits for this development including:
Development Plan under O. Reg. 242/08 of the Endangered Species Act, 2007.
O. Reg. 166/06 Regulation of Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shoreline and Watercourses (TRCA).
