A stop notice on work on a home in Shark Hole has been lifted, the Government said today.
The notice was originally filed on July 22 by the Department of Planning relating to a property on Harrington Sound Road, in the Shark Hole area.
A press statement posted on the Government’s website today said: “On concluding the investigation into this project, the Department of Planning and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources worked with the applicant to remediate any damage to the best extent possible and put in place additional conditions for the construction site to ensure all requirements were met and followed.
“The Ministry of Home Affairs can confirm that both departments are satisfied that the agent has complied with the proposed conditions and the stop work notice has been lifted.”
The statement added that the ministry said the initial planning approval listed 13 conditions that addressed the site’s environmentally sensitive nature. “They were designed to mitigate potential adverse environmental impacts during construction.
“Subsequently, the issued building permit contained seven additional conditions reiterating all the planning conditions to be adhered to during construction.” The conditions were not listed in the press statement.
It continued: “After consultation with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the stop work notice was issued, as a number of the conditions required their specific approval and/or attendance at the site.
“Additionally, various sections of the conservation management plan and approved landscape plan were not followed. The DENR has also now approved the construction environmental management plan and excavation management plan as required before work begins at the site.”
