Conservation Commission

Duties & Responsibilities

The Conservation Commission's duties, as promulgated by NH RSA 36-A include research into local land and water areas, open space and natural, aesthetic or ecological areas, marshlands, swamps, and all other wetlands, and review & comment upon dredge/fill applications that are filed with the NH Department of Environmental Services. The Commission also keeps a sharp eye out for construction along the shore so as to ensure that the NH Shoreland Protection law is respected by all.  In Hampton Falls the Commission is frequently engaged by the Planning Board to review and comment on new developments.
