Response to draft 30m wetland buffer bylaw

– Hudson Town Council adopted a draft wetland protection by-law in October 2019. It falls short of our call for a temporary moratorium on all development that has the potential to negatively impact our natural areas until a conservation plan has been adopted as a by-law. You can read our response to the by-law here. You can read the Town of Hudson’s draft by-law here.

Residential Developments Petition

– Nature Hudson and a group of concerned Hudson residents launched a petition in the summer of 2019 to press Hudson Town Council to put a temporary moratorium on all residential developments that have the potential to negatively impact natural areas in our town. These sectors were previously identified as conservation areas in the 2017 Town of Hudson Conservation Plan for Wetlands and Natural Areas, which was never adopted. 

You can see the areas identified for conservation in Plan 3 – Management and Conservation on the Town of Hudson’s website. These areas are also included on Ducks Unlimited Canada’s Wetland Inventory Map.  Read our printable Background and Rationale document to find out more about the petition and why we feel a temporary moratorium is urgently needed. 

A big thank you to everyone who signed the petition to protect Hudson’s Natural Areas! The petition is now closed and was submitted to Hudson Town Council on November 4, 2019. Close to 700 Hudson residents signed the petition urging the town to put a temporary moratorium on all development with the potential to negatively impact our natural areas.

The petition and Nature Hudson were featured in an article in Your Local Journal, you can read it here
