Statement of Provincial Interest Regarding the Development of the Nova Centre

The Statement of Provincial Interest provides that the planning documents of Halifax Regional Municipality must contain specific policies and regulations for the timely development and construction of the subgrade portion of the Nova Centre, a publically-sponsored convention centre, located on the lands bounded by Argyle, Market, Sackville, and Prince Streets in Halifax.

On September 6, 2013, the Minister of Municipal Affairs issued an Order establishing an Interim Planning Area to allow for the Nova Centre Subgrade Construction (as defined in the Order) to continue while the municipality's amendment process moves forward. The Order is intended to be effective for the duration of HRM's amendment process. It is intended at that time in which the amendment is made to HRM’s Land Use Bylaw, the Order will be revoked.
