UPDATE: January 17, 2018
Draft versions of the Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law regulations are being reviewed internally in preparation for public and stakeholder consultation in early 2018. This consultation will assist the adoption process through the Community Design Advisory Committee, the Community Planning & Economic Development Standing Committee and Regional Council.
The Centre Plan represents a strong blueprint for smart growth in the Regional Centre: directing high-quality development to areas where it can best be accommodated, and providing enhanced protections for heritage properties and neighbourhoods that are well established. The Centre Plan is phase three of HRMbyDesign. Following the establishment of the Regional Centre vision and principles in phase one, and the creation of the Downtown Halifax Plan in phase two. Taken as a whole, the three phases present a vision of a dense, livable and prosperous Regional Centre (Dartmouth and Halifax urban core) that will create sustained economic, environmental and social benefits across the entire municipality.
