Centre Plan ... 2019 update
On Wednesday, September 16th, 2019 Halifax council voted 13-0 to approve the first phase, (Package A) of the Halifax Regional Municipality Centre Plan. (the second Phase, Package B is expected to be ready in 2020.)
Over the past few years, the Park to Park Board and members of Park to Park have engaged extensively in the Centre Plan process, by attending meetings, participating in open house events, and providing a written submission to Planning staff regarding our concerns with the Draft Centre Plan.
The original intent of the Centre Plan was to replace a mishmash of antiquated and conflicting planning rules with a simplified land-use bylaw that paves the way for development on the Halifax peninsula and in Dartmouth within the arc of the Circumferential Highway. The Centre Plan process began in 2016.
