February 2, 2018 – DEANS is seeking the services of a company with significant experience in tourism destination master planning to assist them in the creation of a comprehensive Master Development Plan that will help them, over time, develop a unique, sustainable, “Wild Islands Archipelago” visitor destination on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore.
DEANS is the project manager of the “Wild Islands Tourism Advancement Partnership” (WITAP), a community-based steering committee that has, and will continue to, take an active leadership role in the development of the destination. The project aims to capitalize on the archipelago of approximately seven hundred and fifty near-shore, “wild islands”, with Musquodoboit Harbour, Sheet Harbour and Sherbrooke as the primary visitor-service entry points. Development of the destination is seen as a way to create a long-term economic foundation for the entire region with a focus on organic growth, “world-class quality”, sustainability and a low volume high return product development strategy. There is also a strong possibility that same area will be identified as a potential Marine Protected Area, the first coastal Marine Protected Area in Nova Scotia. Collectively, the islands and the surrounding pristine waters provide a significant opportunity to develop a sustainable, top quality, eco tourism destination.
