Monday, May 9th
In response to a legal proceeding in the NS Supreme Court brought by some nearby landowners, the Town is defending the decision of the Development Officer to issue a development permit for the solar garden project. Council remains fully supportive of this project. In the opinion of the Town’s planning and development professionals and lawyers, the proceeding is based on a misreading of the Town’s planning documents. The Town nevertheless respects the right of those opposed to the project - or to its location next to our wastewater treatment lagoons - to seek judicial review of the development permitting. Our legal counsel has written to their lawyer to express the Town’s full co-operation in getting to a prompt Court hearing. As the judicial review is a matter before the courts, the Town will not be responding to comments or questions on this matter.
