Regional Plan Submissions
To implement our vision of a fully realized, ecologically healthy Regional Park at Sandy Lake and Sackville River, we need changes to the Regional Municipal Planing Strategy in Halifax Regional Municipality (called the Regional Plan for short). The Regional Plan is now being reviewed and updated, and the time to request changes is now (starting March 2020, going until 2024).

The following Coalition groups have already sent in letters supporting the requests made in the Coalition's submission:
