PLANAPP 2023-00474 (Formerly Case 23961) Greenbank Court, Dartmouth



Bryanna Cluett is applying for Dartmouth plan and land use by-law amendments to allow a single unit dwelling at R-I zoned lands in Dartmouth.


The applicant is proposing to amend the Dartmouth Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-law (LUB) to permit single unit dwellings on R-1 (Single Family Residential) zoned properties at Greenbank Court, Dartmouth.

The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:

  • to amend the Dartmouth MPS and LUB to allow for a single-unit dwelling to be built on existing R-1 zoned vacant land at 16 Greenbank Court in Dartmouth. The proposed single-unit dwelling would be serviced by on-site septic and central water services via an existing water main. The amendments would lift the ban on new single-unit dwellings on the subject site; and
  • to consider the existing approximately 26 R-1 zoned lots on Greenbank Court and Cove Lane. Of these approximate 26 lots, 12 lots are already developed. 

The Project Information, Site Plan, and Design Rationale (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail, and include information related to history of the site and intent of the applicant.


The application will be considered under the Municipal Plan Strategy and Land Use By-law amendment 


Currently the planning application process is at the public consultation stage.

The initiation report to Council requested that rather than follow the February 1997 Public Participation Program resolution, given the localized nature and minimal impact of the proposed amendment, that the level of community engagement be achieved through the HRM website, signage on the subject lot, and a narrated power point on Shape Your City with letters, and fact sheets mailed out to nearby residents.

The community will have an opportunity to speak before Regional Council, at the public hearing required, before Council can consider a decision to approve or refuse any amendments.

Documents Submitted for Evaluation

The applicant has submitted plans and studies required by HRM staff to properly evaluate the application. The documents are also available for review at the Planning Applications office at 3rd Floor, Duke Tower, Halifax.
