In 2018, with the input and support of locals, stakeholder groups and businesses, Develop Nova Scotia completed a Master Plan for Lunenburg’s Working Waterfront and was launched in 2019. The goals of the plan are to:

  1. Improve Harbour Infrastructure to Enhance Marine Economic Activity
  2. Ensure Wharves are Used to Full Potential
  3. Create a Common User Shipyard
  4. Explore Opportunity to Support Ocean Technology Sectors/COVE
  5. Better Segregation of Marine Industrial and Tourism Uses
  6. Maintain Ownership of Assets Along the Lunenburg Waterfront
  7. Continue to Invest in Develop Nova Scotia Owned Buildings and Wharves to Foster Economic Activity
  8. Establish a Best in Class Recreational Marina for Transient Boaters
  9. Maximize the Yield Per Tourist, While Reducing Their Impact on the Community
  10. Explore Opportunity for Enhanced Federal Role in Lunenburg Harbour

The plan is currently ongoing, with projects currently underway and new ones announced at Zwicker and the Shipyard (former Smith & Rhuland Shipyard).
