The company that’s been trying for years to build a golf course and resort at Owls Head has backed out of its plan.
November 24, 2021
Lighthouse Links said in a November 24 statement it’s “reluctantly” withdrawing from its letter of offer with the province.
“We have concluded that we do not have the support of the government of Nova Scotia necessary to make this project a reality,” the company said.
… Now, environmental advocates are calling Lighthouse Links’ decision to back away from its plans a victory.
“This is a landmark victory for the people of Nova Scotia,” said Lindsay Lee, of the Save Owls Head Provincial Park lobby group. “When people recognize that something is deeply wrong, and work together with purpose and vision, they can accomplish amazing things.”
In a media statement, Save Owls Head said it hopes to see the province put the land at Owls Head back into the Parks and Protected Areas registry now that it’s “no longer encumbered” by its commitments to Lighthouse Links.
