The Centre Plan will shape the Regional Centre into the future, serving as a blueprint for smart development by providing much needed clarity on how and where growth should occur. The draft plan is being released in installments to allow the time for thoughtful, considered review and public input in relation to each section of the plan. More information on the timeline for releasing the complete draft Centre Plan is available at www.centreplan.ca.

The Centre Plan will be the municipality’s first comprehensive plan in several decades to guide development in the Regional Centre, which encompasses the Halifax Peninsula and the area of Dartmouth inside the Circumferential Highway. The Planning and Development team has been working with the community on the Centre Plan since 2015, and the work has been shaped by what residents have said is most important to them.
