Meetings to Discuss Lot Infilling along Northwest Arm

(Tuesday, November 1/05)-- Two Councillors who represent Districts on both sides of the Northwest Arm will hold public meetings this week and next to deal with the issue of pre-Confederation water lots and infilling.

Councillors Linda Mosher and Sue Uteck are encouraging area residents to attend these meetings to learn more about federal regulations governing the water lots and planning regulations HRM is considering to better control these controversial issues.

Councillor Mosher, Chair of the Chebucto Community Council, has written to federal Fisheries Minister Geoff Regan asking him to impose a moratorium on water lot infill approvals until residents have had the opportunity to review and provide input into the proposed HRM planning regulations.

Councillor Uteck said although infilling of pre-Confederation water lots now requires federal approval, property owners along the Northwest Arm may be impacted in future by the proposed new municipal regulations.

When:   Thursday, November 3, 2005 and Wednesday, November 9, 2005.

Time:     7 p.m.

Where:  St. James Anglican Church Hall, Armdale Rotary, Halifax
