 Revised Centre Plan ...update 

Once the draft CP and bylaws were released in the spring,  the board and some other members of Park to Park attended one or more of a  series of Open house events and visited the store front location on George Street to ask specific questions.   A written submission was provided by to Planning staff by Park to Park.

 Banc Proposal for Wellington Street and Victoria South Park rejected by PAC 

Planning advisory committee meetings were held May 28 and June 25th at City Hall. Victoria South Park was rejected primarily based on the proposed demolition of two historic houses and traffic . Comments on the Banc proposal focused on a lack of alignment with the Centre Plan height and mass and a significant lack of any benefit to the neighbourhood. We hope the developer in both cases paid attention to the comments and will return with a better overall designs that promote the livability and character of our neighbourhood. The projects now move on to Community Council. 


 Another Highrise proposed for Wellington St!!

Banc Investments has applied (case 20774) to build an 8 story, 101 unit apartment  on Wellington Street.  Park to Park attended the Public information session on April 19 and outlined neighbourhood concerns and why we support midrise development in our residential neighbourhood .....more

The unveiling

Gorsebrook Park - commemorative plaque unveiling Dec 2, 2017

 Construction Noise in Residential Neighbourhoods 

If you haven't experienced it yet ....you soon will .....if Council continues to approve large developments in our Southend Neighbourhood, prior to the Centre Plan being introduced.  Now delayed, yet again!  In the hope of alleviating this growing concern , Park to Park has requested that permitted construction hours be changed to bring Halifax in line with cities like Toronto and Vancouver.  This would mean no construction on Sunday and Statutory holidays and reduced hours on Saturday and during the week.  Halifax purports to be a progressive,  a people first city.  Let's put it to the test.  Letter to Council
