Plan Dutch Village Road

Help us shape how Dutch Village Road should grow!


Over the past five years, there has been increased interest in developing higher density, mixed use buildings within the Dutch Village Road area (DVRA). This type of development is currently not permitted under the local land use planning policies therefore each proposal requires a change to planning policy.

In 2013 Regional Council initiated a planning process to establish comprehensive planning policies that enable additional commercial and residential developments on the lands located within Dutch Village Road and neighbouring areas.

Community engagement included an online forum, correspondence with staff and a community workshop held on March 25, 2015. Community input on what would be appropriate for the community with respect to land use and built form informed the proposed land use policies and regulations.

A summary of proposed changes, draft Halifax Municipal Planning Strategy and Halifax Mainland Land Use By-law amendments are now available for public review.

Members of the public are invited to review and comment on the proposed changes until January 8, 2015 through the online forum. Comments may also be submitted to Jennifer Chapman, Planner at chapmaje@halifax.ca. Public feedback may result in changes to the official documents prior to a public hearing at Regional Council.
