Mitigation Planting Resources

The intent of the Conservation Commission is to move all structures and activities as far away as possible from any Resource Area, and to retain and maintain the Buffer Zone in a naturally vegetated condition (see Part II, Section 22.0 of the Hingham Wetland Regulations).

When activities are proposed in the Buffer Zone, the Commission requires mitigation in accordance with the Buffer Zone Mitigation Policy.

The following websites provide additional information on native plants, which are preferred for all mitigation planting areas.
