Public Information Meeting – February 1, 2022

The Municipality is holding a Public Information Meeting regarding an application from Greg Burke to allow for self-storage units on a property zoned Mixed-Use Centre (MC). The application will consider amendments to the East Hants Official Community Plan to enable Highway Commercial Zone (HC) uses, plus self-storage units, through a development agreement on the back of the property adjacent to the CN Rail line. These amendments will not only affect the subject property but other MC zoned properties adjacent to the CN rail line having similar depth along Highway 2.

The meeting is being held on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. via zoom. To participate in the meeting, please register in advance at If public health restrictions change, the meeting may be moved to an in-person meeting. Any updates to the location or format of the meeting will be communicated through the municipal website at or the municipal Facebook page. The meeting will also be live-streamed through the municipal YouTube channel.

The purpose of the meeting is to outline the proposal and respond to any questions and comments. A final decision to approve or refuse the application will take place following a Public Hearing to be scheduled at a later date. To view the staff report, visit, or for further information, please contact Rachel Gilbert, Manager of Planning at or 902.883.6122.
