We are sorry to tell you that East Hants District Council has given the go-ahead for the demolition of Horndean’s 185 year old The Good Intent/Colonial Bar.
Despite the submission of fifteen (15) written objections by members of the public against the demolition of the building, the go-ahead for the demolition has been green-lighted by council officers. The demolition of The Good Intent/Colonial Bar was not debated by elected District Councillors at East Hants District Council’s Planning Committee meetings.
At the risk of having an opinion, personally I am very disappointed that despite fifteen written objections, the demolition wasn’t formally debated by the planning committee.
Demolition is scheduled for February 2016.
We expect when cleared, the land will be sold and affordable housing built; possibility by the same consortium who built affordable housing on the former location of The Anchor.
Time will tell whether this will result in one less reason to have an evening out in Horndean.
