A commercial residential developer required natural resources surveys, environmental permitting, and resource mitigation to accommodate continued growth in the Westhaven Subdivision located in Franklin, Tennessee. These services were needed during the site planning to reduce impact to jurisdictional resources and facilitate a steady, growth trajectory for the subdivision.
Lord & Winter, LLC performed environmental planning, natural resource surveys, environmental permitting, and wetland and stream mitigation projects to facilitate the growth of Westhaven while minimizing impact and enhancing natural resources. The Lord and Winter, LLC, team collaborates with Southern Land Company planners and engineers to clarify the location of protected natural resources to minimize impact. We conducted wetland delineations, stream hydrologic determinations, and Phase 1 Habitat Surveys on 500 acres of wooded terrain of Westhaven which is located in the Outer Highland Rim of Middle Tennessee. Lord and Winter, LLC has prepared several Clean Water Act Section 404 Permit Applications to the US Corps of Engineers – Nashville District. Federal permit applications included endangered species assessments, biological assessments, Phase 1 Cultural Resource Surveys, and clearances for rare, threatened, and endangered species. We worked closely with the client to find opportunities for on-site enhancement and restoration of stream and wetland resources to mitigate for unavoidable impact. Mitigation projects include Rapid Bio-Assessments of Stream Resources, stream restoration design, wetland mitigation design, native planting plans, and Wetland Mitigation Plans.
The Southern Land Company has received Section 404 Permits from the US Army Corps of Engineers – Nashville District and Aquatic Restoration Permits from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) allowing a continued growth of the Westhaven Community in compliance with environmental laws and also taking steps to preserve and restore key natural resources within the Westhaven Subdivision.
