If I hire a consultant, will the Conservation Commission accept their opinion as the final word?

Consultants can help you understand the complicated wetland laws and how they apply to your project, and can also help you communicate efficiently and effectively with the Conservation Commission. However, a consultant you hire to represent your own interests is not an unbiased expert. Therefore, the Commission cannot automatically accept a consultant’s opinion as the final word. If the Commission did so, there would be no one representing the wetland interests of Wayland.
