Stephens Landscaping Professionals has the extensive experience in providing Shoreland & Wetland Permitting services to Lakes Region home & business owners. The permitting process is applicable for any tree removal, vista pruning, additions of landscape elements and related activities.
Before we design or begin work for your property, all state and local regulations must be adhered to for the protection of the natural resources that exist along the shores of New Hampshire's bodies of water.
Effective July 1st, 2008 a revised set of waterfront property regulations were established by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services in the Comprehensive Shore land Protection Act. The regulations provide protection for lake front properties and define specific rules for landscape and construction-related activities in the 50' waterfront buffer, and for protection up to 250' from the high water mark.
Homeowners who want to keep apprised of NH shore land regulations may find information and support at the New Hampshire Shorefront Association. The Association's goal is to protect water quality for the long-run, balanced with fair practices for land use and private property rights. www.nhshorefront.org
