CBRM Forward starts next phase

April 14, 2022

SYDNEY, NS - The public consultation on CBRM's future development resumes next week. The public are invited to Open House sessions on April 19 at the Glace Bay Miners Forum, April 20 at North Sydney Firemen's Club and April 21 at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion. All sessions are from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

These open house sessions will provide the public with an opportunity to review the draft approach to land use and provide feedback on the draft vision for the CBRM over the next 25 years. 

There are several opportunities to engage on the www.cbrmforward.ca website.  The website asks, “Do you think the growth centres and intensification areas are located in the right place? View and engage with the Regional Structure Interactive Map to tell us what you think!” 

The Regional Structure organizes the CBRM’s communities, places, and areas by the roles that they serve for residents. Identifying the Regional Structure of the CBRM allows planners to develop land use by-laws.  

At the open house sessions, the public will also be introduced to the draft approaches to housing, the environment and climate change, economic development and more.
