Dartmouth Crossing Limited wishes to build a new residential and commercial area. The land is undeveloped. This would involve building new roads, buildings, and parks. The planning process will create a site plan and new policy for the area. 


The proposal will be reviewed as a change to the Municipal Plan, known as a Municipal Planning Strategy Amendment.


On January 26, 2021, Regional Council directed municipal staff to begin the planning process. The next step is to inform the public. No changes can be made until after Regional Council hosts a public hearing. 

Documents Submitted for Evaluation

The applicant has provided a preliminary letter. It explains their ideas, at a high level. The municipality may ask for more studies as the project progresses.
