A spokesperson for the owner of the nearest Timmy’s franchise, Bruce Vinneau, told the Cooperator on Friday afternoon that he had “no comment” in response to a question about whether he was planning to open some combination of a gas station and a Timmy’s at 7868 Highway 7 in Musquodoboit Harbour.
Rumours have been flying hot and heavy on local social media since a construction trailer prominently displaying a sign for “Dora Construction” showed up on the empty lot on Monday.
The Cooperator has reviewed the HRM database for construction permits, which is supposed to be no more than 48 hours behind permit applications. There are no permits for construction on 7868 Highway 7 as of 2:00pm, September 7, 2018. The Cooperator has also spoken with District 2 Councillor David Hendsbee, who did not know what was planned for the site, and who has asked for additional information from the Planning Department.
