A controversial campground development in Shediac, New Brunswick, has been given a three-year extension by the town council after a legal challenge has stalled construction efforts, CBC News reported.

Construction has yet to start on the 750-unit campground despite the Shediac council giving its approval to the project in 2014.

The plan has been stalled by a court challenge over whether the proponents can lease land from the Anglican Parish. A Court of Queen’s Bench justice has ordered a trial to decide the matter.

Shediac-Beaubassin-Cap-Pelé Legislator and Health Ministor Victor Boudreau is a partner in the proposed campground. The Shediac Town Council voted to grant a three-year extension on Monday (Aug. 29).
