Cottage Lots Available for Sale on the Avalon Peninsula

Thirty-two Crown land cottage lots on the Avalon Peninsula are being made available through an upcoming public draw. Prices of the lots, which will be sold as grants (outright ownership), range from $29,000 to $49,000 with the full price to be paid upon signature of the title document.

“Crown land is a valuable resource and the Provincial Government will ensure residents have fair access to these cottage lots through our public draw system,” said the Honourable Terry French, Minister of Environment and Conservation. “It is important that we manage our provincial Crown land wisely while at the same time allowing the successful applicants to develop cottage lots in a safe and environmentally-sound manner.”

Anyone interested in obtaining a lot must submit a public draw entry form to the Eastern Regional Lands Office in St. John’s no later than 4:30 p.m., Friday, May 11, 2012. Entry forms received after that deadline will not be eligible. Entry forms are available online at www.gov.nl.ca/env/ or at the Eastern Regional Lands office located at:

Howley Building, 87 Higgins Line
Department of Environment and Conservation
P.O. Box 8700
St. John’s, NL
A1B 4J6

A random draw will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 24, at the Eastern Regional Lands office to determine selection order for the lots. Draw entrants may attend this meeting but attendance is not necessary. The list will be posted on the website and at Crown Lands offices immediately following the draw. The sorted list will not display any personal contact information. It is the responsibility of entrants to check their ranking in the draw as they will not be notified directly.

The selection of lots will take place at a public meeting starting 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 30, at the Capital Hotel, Kenmount Road, St. John’s, at which attendance by entrants, or their officially designated proxy representative, will be required. An application fee of $100 plus $13 HST and a $200 document processing fee 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.

Anyone interested in entering the public draw is advised to inspect lots and view the septic system site evaluations report prior to the selection meeting.
