Plan Development & Engagement

The HGNP will be completed in three phases of data collection, analysis and engagement, including:

Phase 1 - Foundations (completed in winter 2016)

Objective: Understand what we have, what we value and where we want to go, by way of technical study and engagement.

- Phase 1 "What We Heard" Engagement Report
- State of the Landscape Report
- Cultural Landscapes Framework Report
- Fact Sheet: State of the Landscape Report

To date, more than 9,000 comments and ideas have been gathered from the public on important issues pertaining to Halifax’s regional open space network. Feedback was used to draft core planning and implementation directions in Phase 2, which will form the foundation of the HGNP.

The ‘Feedback Sunburst’ is an interactive tool that allows viewers to look more closely at the community input.

Phase 2 - Planning Framework ( to be completed winter 2017)

Objective: Understand landscape impacts through detailed ecological assessment, consider open space network scenarios and options and develop planning and implementation directions.
