Centre Plan Update – April 2021
On March 2, 2021 the Community Design Advisory Committee received the “What We Heard Report”, a summary of the community engagement process and feedback received on Centre Plan Package B. View the meeting agenda. The meeting was livestreamed and the full report is available.
The Centre Plan is a planning process for the Regional Centre, including Peninsula Halifax and Dartmouth inside the Circumferential Highway.
The Centre Plan is being developed in two phases:
• Package A - approved by Council in September of 2019 addresses lands designated for mixed-use growth, and
• Package B – which is under development and addresses lands designated for parks and community facilities, employment, and established residential areas.
Centre Plan Package B continues to be guided by the Community Design Advisory Committee (CDAC). View CDAC meeting agendas and presentations.
Following the conclusion of public engagement in December, the proposed Centre Plan and Land Use By-law are expected to be presented to CDAC on May 26, 2021. This will represent the start of the adoption process for the revised and combined planning policies for both Package A and Package B lands within the Regional Centre. The public hearing on the proposed Plan is tentatively targeted for September 2021.
Please visit Regional Centre Plan Area to read the approved planning documents for Package A lands.
