The municipal councillor for Bedford says a loophole in HRM’s planning regulations has allowed a developer to legally clearcut hundreds of acres of land near Sandy Lake. Coun. Tim Outhit said Armco Communities hasn’t applied for a development permit for the property off Hammonds Plains Road, and so isn’t bound by any municipal laws. “It was quite a surprise to me and some of my colleagues … when we figured out it didn’t apply until the development process began.” A handful of area residents gathered at the site Thursday to protest the clearcutting, saying it’s jeopardizing “fragile” land. “Sandy Lake is an absolutely

turning the community against them,” he said. Armco’s website states the land is being cleared so that development can begin as soon as the city’s planning process is complete. “Areas for cutting have been assessed and any potential wetlands have been carefully delineated to ensure these lands are not disturbed,” states the site. Armco’s vice-president of sales said the company is staying in touch with the community. “We met with them, we told them we would meet with them as the planning progress continues,” said Chris Fourgnaud. Outhit said closing the loophole could happen as part of the five-year review of the Regional Plan. “That’s one way to deal with it, but of course that would be for going forward,” he said. “That wouldn’t be retroactive.”
