Timberland Development On Hold - Injunction Permanent

We're ... Are you?

The Town of Pasadena had put an injunction on Timberland Resort to stop the start of development work a year ago.

Brian Pike, the former mayor of Pasadena hoping to build an 18-hole golf course and more than 300 residential units, claimed Timberland was exempt from obtaining permits or signing a development agreement with the Town of Pasadena. However the Town, and then reconfirm recently by the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, believe that the exemption is not transferable.

The Timberland Resort development looks like its either got to stop its "go it alone" approach and work in partnership with the Town of Pasadena, or declare itself dead.

Bob Mercer, the mayor of Pasadena, made it clear that the Town is not against developments, reminding people of the South Brook development. South Brook (at the eastern end of Boom Siding, and to the north west side of Pasadena) has got all its relevant permits, and they are due to start clearing work this spring.
