        Centre Plan Update – November 2021

        Centre Plan was approved by Regional Council and is in effect as of November 27, 2021.  Approved planning documents are now available here. Thank you to all residents, stakeholders, and members of the Community Design Advisory Committee for your engagement and feedback on the Centre Plan.

        The Centre Plan was a planning process for the Regional Centre, including Peninsula Halifax and Dartmouth inside the Circumferential Highway. The Centre Plan was developed in two phases, Package A - approved by Council in September of 2019, and Package B approved by Regional Council on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 following a public hearing. With the approval of the Regional Centre Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law, all pre-existing planning documents are repealed from the Regional Centre Plan Area and the new policies apply.

        The Centre Plan is based on the core concepts of complete communities, pedestrians first, human sled design, and strategic growth in areas served by transit and other services.   The plan was developed with extensive community engagement and supports new housing, business opportunities, urban design, heritage, and parks and open spaces.   


        Regional Council Approves Key Changes

        Between April and July 2021, a number of Community Councils and Committees of Council reviewed Centre Plan Package B and forwarded recommendations to Regional Council.

On October 26, 2021, Regional Council approved the plan. The adoption path included:
