Notice of Application – Elmsdale

TAKE NOTICE that the Planning and Development Department for the Municipality of East Hants has received the following application:

Municipal Planning Strategy Amendment, Elmsdale

A proposal from VanSlyke Group Inc. to change the designation at 192/194 Highway 214, Elmsdale from the Village Core (VC) Designation to Established Residential Neighbourhood (ES) Designation and rezone the same from Village Core (VC) Zone to the Two Dwelling Unit Residential (R2) Zone. The purpose of the application is to permit the subdivision of an existing semi-detached dwelling on the property into two separate properties, which is not permitted in the Village Core (VC) Zone due to minimum lot size requirements.

This is a preliminary notice intended to inform the public of consideration of the proposal.  Approval by Municipal Council at a public hearing is required before the proposal may proceed.  An advertisement will be published at a later date indicating the time, date, and location of the hearing and any related public meetings.

For further information regarding this application, please contact Debbie Uloth, Project Planner, at or  902.883-3387 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, exclusive of statutory holidays.
