At the recent council meeting this past Tuesday Jan 6th there was a lot of good information of which all can be accessed on the Trent Lakes web site but of particular interest was the information put forward on the expansion of the CDR Young quarry on Bass Lane Rd. on Crown Land. As expressed at the council meeting apparently, our Municipality does not have a lot of control over this proposed quarry expansion as it is on Crown Land.
It is located about 15 km North of Bobcaygeon on County Rd. 49.
CDR Young’s Aggregate has an application pending at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry for an amendment to extract aggregate from below the water table, increase days and hours of operations, and increase max. annual tonnage from 300,000 to 850,000 tonnes.
Our municipality has until January 30th, 2015 to comment on the matter!!
Please find attached is a report from this proposed expansion from Trent Lakes and also a presentation of this expansion to the City of Kawartha Lakes.
There is an open house to be hosted by the MNR on:
Friday January 16, 2015. 6pm to 8 pm
Site Plan Amendment/ Public Info Meeting
CDR Young Aggregate, Bass Lane
Bobcaygeon Legion, Branch 239, King Street (corner of King and East St (36 road))
