What is the status of the large development called East Haven in southern Pender County?

Shelby Sebens

The project known as East Haven in southern Pender County is in limbo like several other zombie developments in the area, not quite dead but barely living.

One preliminary permit for the 4,000-unit development expired but was brought back to life with the state’s Permit Extension Act went into effect, Pender County Planning Director Patrick Davenport said. The Permit Extension Act, which passed without opposition in both the Senate and House and took effect in August, states any developer with valid building permits from January 2008 to the end of 2010 does not have to go back to county or town governments to get the permits extended. Another permit for East Haven was about to expire and was extended.

The site is owned by several entities, although Sidbury Land Holdings LLC made the original  application to the county for development. No timeline for completion was ever presented. The development was supposed to include single- and multi-family residences.
