Aster Environmental - Core Service Area Spotlight:


The City of Peterborough is the gateway to the Kawartha Lakes/cottage county and is the namesake and administrative center of Peterborough County. The county encompasses a diverse landscape that includes rolling hills, forests, lakes, and farmland. Peterborough County is home to several smaller communities including Lakefield, Norwood, and Havelock. Most development within the local area is concentrated within the city itself; however, rural development is common, including agricultural lot severances and intensification of rural settlements.

Due to the abundance of natural features found throughout the County, as well as within the city limits, development applications frequently require submission of an environmental impact study, natural heritage evaluation, and/or Species at Risk assessment. Aster Environmental has the expertise to complete these technical reports at a fair and competitive rate. Aster staff are closely familiar with the environmental constraints found throughout Peterborough. Contact us to assist you in preparing technical studies to support your application.
