The Keesmaat report on the HRM Centre Plan is now complete. The results were presented at a public meeting on May 9th; if you missed the meeting you can watch the video at or view Keesmaat’s presentation slides.

We invite anyone interested to read the full Keesmaat Report, or a Key Recommendations document is also available.

As a major industry stakeholder UDI has been following the Centre Plan process with interest, and has provided ongoing feedback. UDI, like HRM and other stakeholder groups within the city, looks to the Centre Plan to help us create dynamic, prosperous and liveable neighourhoods throughout the municipality. We hope that the final plan will also ensure an efficient and reasonable development process.

We believe that any plan of this magnitude benefits from independent assessment, and, in conjunction with various industry partners invited Jennifer Keesmaat  to conduct a peer review. Jennifer Keesmaat visited Halifax for discussions with many of our partners in the process, including HRM officials and an experienced ‘Leaders Table’ group selected to provide guidance throughout the process.
