Aggregate Resources and Extraction

LAND USE PLANNING - Aggregate Resources and Extraction

Specialized legal, planning and environmental knowledge is often required to deal with the many issues that aggregate producers face. Our firm has decades of experience in this area, having acted for many of this country's largest aggregate producers with the following matters:

  • approvals for the extraction of aggregate
  • amendments to existing licences of operation
  • planning, compliance and prosecution issues
  • the rehabilitation of aggregate sites
  • the acquisition, sale and expropriation of aggregate sites
  • the assessment of aggregate sites for realty tax purposes

We regularly appear before the courts and tribunals on these issues, in virtually all parts of the Province. In doing so, we work with our own professional planners, as well as with the leading planning and environmental firms in this area.
