Existing Construction and Demolition Materials Processing Facility at 16 Mills Drive, Goodwood
Request: Application by Halifax C&D Recycling Limited to consider amending the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-law (LUB) for Planning District 4 (Prospect) to permit expansion of the existing construction and demolition materials processing facility located at 16 Mills Drive in Goodwood.
Background: Halifax C&D Recycling Limited operates a construction and demolition materials (C&D) processing facility at 16 Mills Drive in Goodwood. The facility is located on two adjoining parcels of land.
Proposal: Halifax C&D Recycling Limited wishes to expand the processing operation onto land immediately west of the existing site. The land in question is approximately 29,000 square feet, and if included with the existing operation, would represent a 17 percent increase in area. This land is zoned I-1 by the LUB, designated Residential B by the MPS, and lies within a larger parcel currently used as a tire recycling facility.
Process: This application is being considered under the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law Amendment process.
Status: Any request to consider amendments to HRM planning policies must first be considered and initiated by Regional Council. This does not bind the Council to approving a project, but directs it to be considered through detailed reviews and public consultation.
On April 17, 2012, Regional Council considered the project and a Staff Report that recommended Council initiate a process to further consider potential amendments related to the proposal. Regional Council followed this advice and has initiated the review and public consultation process.
Documents Submitted for Evaluation: The applicant has submitted the plans required by HRM staff to properly evaluate the application. These materials are available for review at the Planning Services office in Halifax.
The following documents have been made available in digital form:
- Initial Submission Material – June 2011
- Revised Submission (Letter) – December 2011
- Revised Submission (Site Plan) – December 2011
All plans are subject to change as negotiations and public consultations proceed. Additional information about the project will be updated to this webpage as the application proceeds through the review process.
