Following the requirements of the Council Disposal of Surplus Property Policy of 2019 (Policy), the Town of Shelburne (Town) is moving forward with disposing of surplus property in a fair, legally compliant and impartial manner, which takes into account the highest financial return to the Town, balanced with economic and community development opportunities. The Town has determined it has not identified any long-term use for this property (see Policy 1.a) ).

Through this Call for Expression of Interest method (see Policy 3.a) ) the Town is asking interested parties to submit sealed submissions for the purchase of the properties of PIDs 80149412, 80149420 and 80149438 altogether (as a parcel) plus the unopened 60-foot wide roads in-between (see map below). The Town requires the parcel to be utilized for housing development with a minimum of 12 units, for the approximate 5.28-acres of land. Per the Land Use By-Law, this parcel is presently zoned Residential Mobile (R-M) therefore purchaser would have to apply for any desired zoning changes, per Section 210 of the Municipal Government Act of Nova Scotia (MGA).


The parcel will be awarded to the highest bidder and requires the purchaser to sign a buy-back contract, agree to submit their plans to the Town for housing development within 120 days of signing as well as complete the building of said development within 36 months of signing. The minimum bid is set at $49,000. Applicable taxes and transfer fees will be additional costs and at the expense of the purchaser. The Town will cover the cost of the survey but not the migration (registry) or rezoning (if requested). The unopened Morris Street on the north side of a portion of this parcel may be made available for purchase by any abutting property owners, at a future date.
