West Hants coun­cil is look­ing to in­stall an emer­gency ac­cess gate in an area that strad­dles the Wind­sor and West Hants boundary line — and they’re do­ing so with, or with­out, Wind­sor’s bless­ing.

West Hants War­den Abra­ham Ze­bian broached the sub­ject Nov. 27 at the com­mit­tee of the whole meet­ing. He said it was high time the sit­u­a­tion was dealt with.

“It’s just a sore spot in our area and I’d like to see it cor­rected and so would our res­i­dents,” said Ze­bian.

The area in ques­tion is a small strip of land lo­cated be­tween the re­tire­ment com­mu­nity in Gar­lands Cross­ing and the Un­der­wood Drive sub­di­vi­sion in Wind­sor.

The se­niors’ com­mu­nity, known as The Cross­ing, has one way in and one way out. Res­i­dents there are con­cerned that if the road ever be­comes blocked and there’s an emer­gency, they won’t be able to leave and the con­se­quences could be dire.
