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). Below are our Coalition's submissions to the stakeholder and public consultations on the Regional Plan review.

We encourage everyone who cares about Sandy Lake and Sackville River (and nature, and outdoor recreation, and sustainable cities) to send in their own regional plan review submission. You can also talk to city councillors, and candidates running for city council, about your views on a good future for Sandy Lake and Sackville River.
