HRM rejects ashphalt plant application for Miller Lake
Pat Healey

MILLER LAKE: Community members and the local councillor are again on their toes after planners with the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) rejected an application for an asphalt plant permit in Miller Lake.
The application from Scotian Materials—formerly known as Northern Construction—is to construct the plant in the same area where Northern had proposed to build a quarry, which created much community uproar. It was enough of opposition that it has had to through a Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board hearing siding with HRM’s decision and a Nova Scotia Appeal court ruling, also siding with residents.
It’s a decision Councillor Barry Dalrymple and residents applaud. However, they’re anticipating more legal wrangles should Scotian decide to appeal the decision to reject the permit based on the area not being zoned for heavy-industrial activities such as an asphalt plant.
