SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Foundation issued a permit (ACA 2015-005) to Matthew Lazzara on September 17, 2014. The issued permit allowed the applicant to enter Cape Hallett (ASPA 106) to service and upgrade a weather station.

Now the applicant proposes a modification to his permit to enter ASPA 106 during the 2015-2016 season to complete the work that was unfinished during the 2014-2015 season. The Environmental Officer has reviewed the modification request and has determined that the amendment is not a material change to the permit, and it will have a less than a minor or transitory impact.
