HRM has scheduled the Public Engagement sessions for the Halifax Green Network Plan, where they are looking to gather information from the public about how we can best implement data collected in the first two phases of the Plan.
We’re advocating for the HGNP to create a Green Network (the same as a Greenbelt) to protect all our beautiful natural landscapes across HRM from residential and commercial development. This would not create a giant network of parks, but instead would using zoning and easement measures to protect the most vulnerable landscapes. HRM has already identified exactly where the Green Network should be in Map 6 of the Primer Report (page 31) by identifying the most valuable open green spaces and the most crucial corridors that connect these green spaces. This is The Green Network!
