Proposal - View the site in Google Maps
The  applicant has requested that Harbour East-Marine Drive Community Council approve a rezoning in order to enable development of a new industrial building.

The subject property is designated Industrial and Residential under the Dartmouth Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and currently zoned S (Institutional) under the Dartmouth Land Use By-law (LUB).

The site plan (provided below) shows the proposed industrial building which consists of a 2275 square metre facility, intended to serve as a business development incubator. The existing facility located at 1 Research Drive would also be zoned from S to I-1 in order to recognize the existing business use of the site.
