Policy Direction

The Policy Direction Paper provides initial options for changes to Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw. The policy recommendations are informed by the public consultations, background analysis, and the planning team’s experiences in other communities in Nova Scotia and the rest of Atlantic Canada. The Policy Direction Paper is complemented by six Analysis & Discussion Papers that provide understanding of the current conditions in Queens, and some of the key trends that will likely shape the Region’s future.

  • Read the Policy Direction Paper and the Analysis & Discussion Papers.
