Outdoor Wood Furnace Denied

A variance request to reduce the setback requirements to install an outdoor wood furnace in Riverport has been denied by Lunenburg Municipal Council. Area Councillor Don Zwicker says despite new technology they had to make their decision using the current land use bylaw. Zwicker says the applicant has other options such as electricity or oil. The applicant requested a reduction to the yard setbacks from 125 feet to 10 feet on one side. The applicant, Diego Medina can also ask the Area Advisory Committee to consider an amendment to the currentLand Use By-law.
