Community Petition to Establish Cedar Side Pub at Edible Matters Family & Licensed Restaurant
Edible Matters has received hundreds of requests to establish a licensed neighborhood pub to complement our bakery, catering, take-out, and licensed family restaurant. Residents and customers have informed us as owners and many of our 29 staff-members that Hammonds Plains is a growing community that would be complemented by a nice, reputable, well run neighbourhood pub. Currently, residents of Hammonds Plains have to travel all the way to Tantallon, Bedford, or Halifax to find a neighbourhood pub or bar.
Our neighbourhood pub would have no video lottery terminals, pool tables, or amplified music. It would have hours of operations that are respectful to our patrons and neighbours. The pub would be located in a separate location from our family restaurant, within the same building. Pub patrons would enjoy the same type of made from scratch food for which Edible Matters has become known. To establish a pub first requires the approval of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), then the Province of Nova Scotia. Approval from HRM is achieved through a planning application process. We have retained an experienced planning and development consultant KWR Approvals Inc. (www.kwrapprovals.com) to assist me in working with HRM for the necessary approvals. There will be public and community consultation (i.e. meeting) as part of HRM’s planning process.
Community support for a neighbourhood pub is essential. To make Edible Matters neighbourhood pub, Cedar Side Pub, a reality to serve residents of Hammonds Plains your support is requested, welcomed and most appreciated. If you agree please consider signing the petition below in support of a Cedar Side Pub at Edible Matters. Thank you and we hope to have the opportunity to establish a clean, safe, fun and relaxing neighborhood pub in the near future.
Please print your name, address and your email address (optional).
