Halifax Green Network Plan

Halifax’s open space landscape is exceptional in its beauty and diversity, as well as its environmental, socio-cultural and economic value. Being deliberate in how we protect and use open space over the long-term is important to advancing regional planning objectives for sustainable growth and the development of more liveable, complete communities.

Project Overview

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 vision and framework to protect and manage open space. The Halifax Green Network Plan will achieve that goal.

State of the Landscape Report: Issues and Opportunities

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 will influence the development of the HGNP.

Public Engagement

Last spring we gathered more than 9,000 comments and ideas on issues of importance for the future open space network. That feedback was the first step. Now we need your help to shape the planning directions. Deadline to fill out our online survey is May 15!
