The Design Review Committee serves the Downtown Halifax Land Use Bylaw area. The principal roles of the Design Review Committee are to review site plan approval applications for substantive site plan approval, and consider whether or to approve, approve with conditions, or deny the application based on the requirements and consistency with the Design Manual, in addition to advising Council on potential amendments to regulation and policy relating to the Downtown Halifax Land Use Bylaw Area. 

More detail about the committee’s role can be found in the Terms of Reference, Section 4 of the Downtown Halifax Land Use Bylaw [PDF].

The Design Review Committee normally meets on the second Thursday of each month, at 4:30 p.m. Meeting dates and times are subject to change. Check the calendar below, and the agenda (once available) to confirm the exact date and time for each meeting.
