Big Cook's Pond (Corner Brook) Cottage Management Plan

Proponent: Land Management Division

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to establish a maximum of 25 remote cottage lots within the Big Cook's Pond Cottage Planning Area to ensure further development is limited to acceptable levels with regard to environmental and health safety concerns and in appropriate locations with respect to other land uses. The Big Cook's Pond Cottage Planning Area is situated approximately 14 kilometres southwest of the City of Corner Brook . Development of the remote lots is confined to sites along Big Cook's Pond in two separate areas. A typical cottage lot size is 0.4 hectares and the total proposed lots represent a development area of 10 hectares. The remainder of the Planning Area is restricted from further cottage development. The remote lots will have on-site sanitary and potable water facilities. No road construction is required for the remote cottage lots.
