Aircraft Activity between Enfield Road and Highway 214

East Hants has received numerous inquiries regarding aircraft activity taking place in the vicinity of Enfield Road and Highway 214.  Transport Canada has advised that they have given authorization for aircraft training to take place in the area. It is expected that the training will be completed in the next several weeks.

Aviation issues are regulated by the Federal Government. East Hants does not regulate uses related to aviation except as it relates to land use/land zoning.  This use is not a zoning issue and is not related to efforts several years ago to rezone land in the area. If a rezoning application was to be made it would be subject to full public participation as it was in the past.

Transport Canada may be contacted at 1-800-305-2059 for further information.
