The owners of the Lunenburg Arms Hotel located at 94 Pelham Street have made an application to Lunenburg Town Council to build a new King’s Hotel on the site of the original King’s Hotel, which was demolished in the 1950s.

The application received its first reading by Council at their April 12, 2022 meeting and a Public Hearing is scheduled for June 14, 2022.

The site currently functions as a parking lot, located at the corner of Duke Street and Pelham Street on lands known as PID 60061199 and 60061181.

The site is located within the Old Town Heritage Conservation District and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is therefore subject to the Heritage Conservation District Plan and Bylaw.

Council must consider a new commercial building through the Public Hearing Process. A decision is made after this takes place.

If the application is successful, an advertisement is then placed advising of Council’s decision and the rights to appeal to the NSUARB. Once the appeal period (21 days) has elapsed the Certificate of Appropriateness may then be issued. Following the issuance of the Certificate of Appropriateness, the Development Permit and Building permit may be issued.

The Public Hearing will take place at the Council Chamber, Town Hall, 120 Townsend Street at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Any interested persons who wish to speak are welcome to participate and make their opinions known to Council. Council will accept written submissions up to and including June 8, 2022 to be included in the Council agenda package. Verbal as well as written presentations are welcome during the Public Hearing.
