Halifax Regional Municipal Planning Strategy

Created: 7/31/2006 - Updated: 3/22/2018


The Regional Municipality Planning Strategy (this Plan) is a guide for the future development of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). It represents a significant step forward in integrated land use planning and long-term coordination. It is a framework that outlines how future sustainable growth should take place in the HRM, in a way that preserves the environment while at the same time maintaining a strong economy. The overarching goal of this Plan is to achieve a shared vision of the future of HRM, a vision of healthy, vibrant and sustainable communities, without taking away from the character that makes HRM a distinct and attractive place to live.
