Anyone interested in a lot must submit a public draw entry form to the Western Regional Lands Office in Corner Brook before 3:45 p.m. on Sept. 14.
The lots will be issued as a licence to occupy for an annual rental fee and a condition that the licence must be renewed every five years.
A public draw to determine applicant selection order for the lots through a random draw process will be held at the Crown lands office in the Sir Richard Squires Building in Corner Brook on Sept. 27 at 9:30 a.m.
The list will be posted on the department’s website and at Crown Lands offices at 11 a.m. on the same day as the random draw. It will be the responsibility of entrants to check for their ranking in the draw, as draw entrants will not be contacted.
The list will not display any personal contact information.
The selection of lots will take place at a public meeting at the Fisherman’s Landing Inn in Rocky Harbour on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. Attendance by draw entrants or their designated proxy representative is required and application and document processing fees must be paid at the time a lot is selected.
The non-refundable fees will be charged towards the cost of processing the application and preparing title documents. Applicants are advised to inspect lots prior to the selection meeting. Any lots remaining after the lot selection meeting will be offered to the public on a first-come, first-served basis on the next business day.
Information on individual lot location can be obtained from the Western Regional Lands Office or by calling 637-2392.
“Crown land is truly one of our most valuable resources and our government will continue to ensure the people of the province have fair access to cottage lots through our public draw system,” Environment and Conservation Minister Terry French said in a press release Friday.
