A 285-hectare package of uninhabited Crown land on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia that generated headlines throughout much of 2021 remains mired in limbo.
But surrounding properties in the Little Harbour/Owls Head area are changing hands.
A real estate couple from Magog, Que., about 125 kilometres southeast of Montreal, have recently purchased 10 properties in the Little Harbour area.
“I know of two for sure that were sold,” Bev Isaacs, a Little Harbour resident and ardent opponent of the golf courses proposal, said Thursday of the Gilberts’ holdings.
“He has a few more up for sale and I had heard he sold off 515 (Little Harbour Road), the one that is next to Owls Head provincial park,” Isaacs said.
“From what I saw, it was a real estate agent that supposedly bought that property that’s next to Owls Head provincial park so that could be a little bit worrisome too because you’re wondering what this guy might be up to.”
