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.

Provide Feedback

The formal period for comment on the Policy Direction is closed, and we have begun drafting new planning documents. However, we continue to welcome feedback. Please contact us with any feedback. Depending on the scope of proposed changes, we may be able to include them in the current draft, or they may be a point of discussion during the public review of the drafts.
