Protecting open space is a core value for Halifax citizens and a primary objective of the 2014 Regional Plan. Regional Council has identified the need for a strategic planning framework that will inform best practices for protecting and managing open space as an interconnected system across the Halifax Region. The Halifax Green Network Plan (HGNP) will help the municipality to advance these goals.
As the first major deliverable of the Halifax Green Network Plan, the State of the Landscape Report: Issues and Opportunities provides an overview of the key open space values, issues, and opportunities that are considered in the development of the HGNP.
Learn more about the three phases of the Halifax Green Network Plan, feedback received to date and future opportunities for public engagement.
