Background and next steps
On January 1, 2023, as part of the provincial local governance reform process, the new local government of Grand Bay-Westfield was formed. It includes the former Town of Grand Bay-Westfield (Ward 1) and a portion of the former Local Service District of Westfield West focused on areas along and off Brittain Road and Campbell Road (Ward 2).
As a result of local governance reform, Grand Bay-Westfield will require amendments to its Municipal Plan and Zoning By-laws, which will apply to both Wards.
The amendments to the Grand Bay-Westfield Municipal Plan and Zoning By-laws includes three (3) phases of community engagement.
Phase I of community engagement was launched by the Town of Grand Bay-Westfield on February 3, 2023. This was designed to gather insight into the community’s priority issues, and provide a foundation for the Municipal Plan and Zoning By-laws amendments. Phase I was facilitated virtually, involving an online survey, which was open for community feedback from February 3 until March 6, 2023.
Phase II of community engagement involved an Open House event, which occurred on February 28, 2023 between 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Nerepis Baptist Church. During the Open House, residents were invited to the discuss the amendments with the project team, as well as share their thoughts and opinions.
