Last year the government quietly removed Owls Head provincial park in Little Harbour from the province’s pending protected status list. The move was made so negotiations could begin with Lighthouse Links Development Co., which hopes to acquire the 285 hectares of coastal headland, add it to land it already owns, and build up to three golf courses.

…CBC’s Michael Gorman reported that the province removed Owls Head from a pending protected status list. The province wants to negotiate with Lighthouse Links Development Co., which wants to build a golf course in the area.

Environment minister Gordon Wilson tells Gorman even if the land is sold, there will be an environmental assessment process, including time for public comment, before development goes ahead.

But then the department deleted Owls Head from the map.
