Construction Mitigation Guidelines project image - street and sidewalks with detour signs

New construction in Halifax’s downtown and other commercial areas is a sign of economic development and vitality, yet can also create unwelcome impacts such as dust, noise, street and sidewalk closures, reduced parking and accessibility.

In February 2016 Regional Council directed the development of new construction guidelines to address impacts of construction activity on businesses, residents and visitors in time for the 2016 construction season. The proposed guidelines are based on best industry practices and stakeholder feedback.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in providing feedback on the proposed guidelines. The proposed construction management guidelines along with a summary of public engagement will be presented to Council shortly.
