NOTICE OF INTENTION

A By-law to Repeal the Land-Leased Community By-law

Please take notice that on September 24, 2019, Municipal Council gave its notice of intention to repeal the Land-Leased Community By-law. Council will consider second and final reading on October 22, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in the Council Chamber at 210 Aberdeen Road, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

This By-law repeals the existing Land-Leased Community By-law. The purpose of Land-Leased Community By-law was to ensure public health and safety from high density development in a rural area; therefore, higher standards on infrastructures are imposed in such communities.

While the intention was to promote affordable housing by allowing higher density, those wanting to use manufactured homes as a cheaper alternative to site-built homes were also restricted. The By-law also fails to reflect the current real estate market, as no application was received since 1977. Council intends to repeal the Land-Leased Community By-law as it is not meeting its intention.

Council requests that those wishing to provide feedback on Council’s intention to repeal the Land-Leased Community By-law submit written comments before Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on October 15, 2019 to Ms. Sherry Conrad, Municipal Clerk, 210 Aberdeen Road, Bridgewater, NS, B4V 4G8 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Copies of the proposed by-law and supplementary documents are available at the Municipal Office at 210 Aberdeen Road, Bridgewater, NS, during normal office hours between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., or found at the links below.  For further information, please contact Planning & Development Services at (902) 541-1325, or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Currently, the Municipality cannot and does not mandate property owners to improve or maintain private roads. Problems arise when an emergency occurs. In certain cases, fire trucks and Emergency Health Service ambulances cannot safely arrive at their destinations due to substandard road conditions on private roads – this can stem from certain road materials, narrow right-of-way width, steep slope, sharp corners, and hanging tree branches, to list a few common concerns. According to several local emergency service operators, a large number of private roads cannot accommodate fire trucks passing each other at reasonable speed.

The Subdivision By-law (created in 2018) addresses minimum standards for the construction of new private roads, but not for the maintenance of private roads.

Council wants to hear from residents about their thoughts on private roads and the implementation of minimum standards for private road maintenance. Those interested in giving their input are cordially invited to attend one of the following four Public Drop-In Sessions:

New Germany Legion, September 19, 2 to 3pm
New Germany Legion, September 19, 6:30 to 7:30pm
Lunenburg Fire Hall, September 24, 2 to 3pm

Administration Building, 210 Aberdeen Road, October 8, 2 to 3pm
Administration Building, 210 Aberdeen Road, October 8, 6:30 to 7:30pm

The Municipality thrives when residents have their voices heard. As those who live, work and play in our region, residents know the most about issues and challenges facing their community.
