INTRODUCTION

This Municipal Planning Strategy has been prepared according to the provisions of the Planning Act, RSNS 1989, c. 346, and pursuant to Municipal Council's adoption of Policy Paper I: Municipal Development Plan Preparation for the Urban Areas in the autumn of 1980. The planning strategy covers the area within the boundary of Municipal Electoral District 5, being the communities of Eastern Passage and Cow Bay and intervening lands.

Instrumental in the planning process were Public Participation Committees from the two communities affected. These Committees had representation on the Municipal Planning Strategy Committee of Council and held prime responsibility for the success of general public input and participation throughout the process. A survey, newsletter and other mailed information, as well as individual interviews and general public meetings contributed to the development of a community-based planning strategy. Also, in keeping with the provisions of the Planning Act, this Municipal Planning Strategy was subjected to an extensive review conducted in the 1988-1992 period. In this case, public input was gathered from a survey sent to every household in the Plan Area and through a number of public meetings held by the Plan Review Committee of Council.

The planning strategy is organized into four sections. Section I places the Plan Area within a regional context and contains an outline of basic considerations which have affected the development of policies for future land use. The second section discusses the status of environmental health services, transportation facilities and the provision of services within the Plan Area. Section III contains policies and development control guidelines for general land use regulation. The final section consolidates the various implementation measures of the strategy's land use policies as provided for within the document and through the Planning Act.

The policies adopted by Municipal Council in this strategy are prefaced by explanatory text which shall be considered as a legal part of the strategy. Of the maps which are included and specifically referred to, Map 1- Generalized Future Land Use Map (RC-Jan 27/98;M-Apr 27/98), Map 2 - Trunk Sewerage System, Map 2a - Water Service Districts (C-Aug 29/94;M-Oct 21/94), Map 3 Transportation and Map 4 - Environmental Constraints (RC-Jan 27/98;M-Apr 27/98) shall also constitute legal parts of this strategy. Map 1 shall direct the preparation and amendment of the zoning map for the Plan Area.

Regional Context As shown on the accompanying map (overleaf), the Plan Area is located at the southeast entrance to Halifax Harbour and includes the only urban waterfront within the Municipality of the County of Halifax. This harbour mouth location initiated and continues to support its interest to the department of National Defense, which is a significant participant in the metropolitan area generally. Extensive DND holdings, including major military air and seaports and quarters for some 1,400 people, define the northern and southern boundaries of the community of Eastern Passage and command the southernmost point of Cow Bay. In particular, the Canadian Forces Base Shearwater has had both physical and political influences upon the Plan Area and will continue to play an important role in its future.

Although the Plan Area is beyond the administrative boundary of the Port of Halifax, it contributes major waterfront activity to the region. In addition to the longstanding operations of CFB Shearwater, the traditional fishing industry is still very much in evidence, despite its disappearance elsewhere on Halifax Harbour. More recent industrial developments include Ultramar Canada's oil refinery and bulk storage installation and Canadian National's Autoport - a vehicle storage and distribution facility of national significance.

By the turn of the century, the search for adequate water forced the more imaginative farmers to seek ways of conveying large amounts of water long distances in the hope that they...»
